42     if (!(pid = fork())) {
43         setenv("LD_LIBRARY_PATH", LIBPATH, 1);
44         execl("/sbin/load_policy",
45               "/sbin/load_policy", "-q", NULL);
46         logMessage(ERROR, "exec of load_policy failed: %m");
47         exit(1);
48     }

This is a pretty strange place to get a crash, but it seems obvious what the problem is - load_policy failed.  When you get this crash, can you jump over to tty3 and tty4, take a picture, and attach them to this bug report?

Are you perhaps trying to install an x86_64 distribution on an i386 machine?  I've been completely unable to reproduce this problem in any installations here, and we have not gotten widespread reports of it.  So I don't know what could be going on.
