Segfault at src/lib/misc.c:1193 in 3.0.4 (3.0.11 looks very similar)

Behavior is similar on two production hosts running Centos 7.2. Radius 
is setup as proxy only, passes authentication successfully for a time, 
then abruptly segfaults. Attached gdb to corefile and found this:

Using host libthread_db library "/lib64/".
Core was generated by `/usr/sbin/radiusd -d /etc/raddb'.
Program terminated with signal 11, Segmentation fault.
#0  fr_ipaddr_cmp (a=0x20, b=0x7f3965a30510) at src/lib/misc.c:1193
1193            if (a->af < b->af) return -1;

It looks like it's somehow getting the memory address for "a" set to 
0x20, which is obviously invalid, and then it segfaults.

Where should I look in the configs for where realm acct_pool servers is 
being set up and what would I expect to see in a configuration that 
would allow the server to run successfully and then crash abruptly like 

Obviously let me know what other data to provide for debugging this.
