Yes there is a reliable recipe to reproduce.

I've prepared the VM, just let me know how I should send you the login
credentials (without the whole internet getting their hands on them)
since I can not write them here.

The exact recipe is described in my first email, here is what you need
to do on the VM now that I set it up:

First make sure your terminal is either maximized or fullscreen. Then

cd ~/emacs
emacs -nw .

Now that you have emacs running you should wait untill you see 2
windows: neotree on the left and dired on the right. You need to type:
<SPACE> p f. That is 'spacebar' followed by a 'p' followed by an 'f',
lower case. This will open helm on the lower part of the screen. From
here type what's between the quotes here: "src/term.c" then press
return (RET). You will have to wait a few seconds, then the segfault
will happen.

This is an Ubuntu 14.04 VM, you should be able to do anything you
please with it.

I am also available to chat on any platform you desire if you need
real time feedback from me.
