On the one hand, the particular number format stuff is rarely used, so a bug 
there may not be important (and may depend on the particular ICU library 
shipped on the system).
Well I ve done some tests and this particular problem is common to debian 
testing (stretch)  and unstable (sid) and Ubuntu 16.04 too...
On the other, we really want to fix *any* failure of the regression tests.
Does the same problem occur with gnustep-base from svn trunk?
Can you get a stack trace of the crash?

Well I ve tried to use gnustep-make 2.6.6-3 to build gnustep-base 1.24.9 and 
the regrssesion test ar ok !!
It seem the bug is in gnustep-make 2.6.8 (or in the packaging)
While I don't remember anything significant changng, I guess there might have 
been a change in the test framework code which could have exposed a bug in the 
library  not noticed in the older version or something.  I think we need stack 
traces from gdb (ie full symbolic information) to find out where the issue is.  
It's also strange that nobody else is seeing it.
I'm going to try installing a new debian system to see if I can reproduce it, 
but that's going to take quite some time, and I don't think the chances are 
very good (too many unknown variables).

I've started to play with gdb.
After the crash there are these strange lines:

Program received signal SIGABRT, Aborted.
0x00007ffff6925478 in __GI_raise (address@hidden)
