I assume, from your description, that these crashes didn't happen on
24.0.95?

Off the top of my head, I don't see anything informative in the
backtrace you sent.  But if the bug has something to with process
interaction, there was only one change in process.c between 24.0.95 and
24.0.96 which could have caused this.

Could you try running with the following patch (which basically reverts
said change) and see if it makes any difference?
