Please describe the crash in more detail. What were you doing when it happened? Did the window just disappear, or did you get a dialogue box asking if you want to attach a debugger? Did you get any messages in the terminal that emacs was started from? Is there a stackdump file?

Can you still get a crash if you start emacs with the -Q option? I realize that it might take several days before you know the answer.

Can you run emacs under gdb and try to get a backtrace when it crashes? You'll have to install the emacs-debuginfo package. And you may have to experiment with breakpoints, but I would start by setting one at emacs_abort.
