Doesn't look like a crash but rather a failure I already discussed:

The bug that this is testing for has gone away: the re engine doesn't
stack overflow on this any more.  The tests have been updated in 2.4
but not on the 2.3 branch.  I mentioned that and asked whether I should
just update the 2.3 tests, but apparently the concept is that this should
rather be done by whoever fixed the bug, instead (or during the backport
phase to prepare 2.3.3).

Same, apparently, for the other test-failure you mention.
