The version in subversion trunk is 3.3.1.  Brian at Adaptive 
Computing/Cluster Resources hasn't rolled it into a new release yet. 
3.3.1 from trunk is the one with a bunch of my memory fixes in it.  I've 
been running it on my 170 node cluster over here for a while now with no 
problems and the fixes did fix a segmentation fault problem very similar 
to yours.  I'd suggest that if you are comfortable doing so.
