OK, issue reproduced (thanks again for the test system access) and fix identified:

commit 4b45abd1f000f62df9b624e393d9f3d62751a266
Author: Stephen Hemminger <stephen.hemminger@vyatta.com>
Date:   Thu Jul 29 18:03:35 2010 -0700

    Fix NULL pointer reference when using basic match
    If basic match has no tree of matches underneath
    then print_ematch would core dump.

With this commit backported, the segfault does no longer happen.
