You might consider running emacs under a debugger. It will trap the crash and 
then you can ask where it happened, i.e. a stack trace. The information might 
be of more interest to an emacs developer than to you.

GNU software should not crash. From the emacs info (a description of a typical 
    If Emacs accesses an invalid memory location ("segmentation fault"), or
    exits with an operating system error message that indicates a problem
    in the program (as opposed to something like "disk full"), then it is
    certainly a bug.
The stack trace (along with all the other information that belongs in a bug 
report) can be very helpful.
