That's probably the same bug as reported in:

Subject: [leafnode-list] fetchnews segfaults

The segfault occurs if the upstream server sends a truncated line
(containing too few '\t' characters) in its XOVER response.

IIRC I've sent Cornelius my patches which do also close various memory
leaks, so I hope this will be fixed soon.
