There have been no other reports of problems, but that doesn't mean too
much. If you can stand risking another crash, a core dump would be
really useful to chase this down.
Quick instructions for getting that, please ask if you need more detail:
1) build from source with debugging symbols
apt-get source dnsmasq
2) allow core dumps
ulimit -c unlimited
3) stop existing dnsmasq process
4) run in debug mode
If it goes pop, send src/dnsmasq and the corefile to firstname.lastname@example.org
