Problem connecting to GNATS 'during setup'

Apologies in advance for my igorance, but following the docs
and scanning the mail-archive I have found no clear answer
to the following problem.

On a SuSE 9.2 system, with GNU make, and textinfo installed,
using gnats-4.0.tar.gz I am having the following problem.

As per the INSTALL instructions for GNATS (version 4) and
Gnatsweb and the 'Note Installing' sections listed at

Anyway, the problem seems to be that the gnatsd seg faults
I can telnet to port 1529, but the connection gets dropped

telnet localhost 1529
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
Connection closed by foreign host.

Additionally when running the /usr/local/libexec/gnats/gnatsd
as ./gnatsd -n --database=default I got the following response

422 error (which occurred a couple of times)

now ./gnatsd -n --database=default simply produces the message

Segmentation Fault

The error listed in /var/log/xinetd.log shows the connection
attempt, and subsequent failure (signal 11)

05/8/address@hidden:58:19: START: support from=
05/8/address@hidden:58:19: EXIT: support signal=11 duration=0(sec)

The /etc/gnats/databases and gnats.host_access configs are
as follows

tail -2 /etc/gnats/databases /etc/gnats/gnatsd.host_access
==> /etc/gnats/databases <==
default:Bug database:/gnats/gnatsdb
testdb:Test Database:/gnats/testdb
==> /etc/gnats/gnatsd.host_access <==

The 'gnats' user owns the /gnats/ and subsequent directories.

The 'addresses, gnatsd.user_access, responsible, and submitters
files for both 'default' and 'testdb' databases have been 
edited to allow a test user, following the syntax examples
included in each file.

Given these conditions, is there any obvious oversight in 
this configuration that accounts for the code 422, and the
segmentation faults occurring from the gnatsd.  At this 
point I am not finding 'core' files being dumped anywhere
in the system.  

Sorry for the verbosity, hoping one of you more experienced
folks have some insight or experience with this type of issue
which I'm hoping is merely some oversight on my part during
