I also see this issue:

Sep 30 17:52:01 admin kernel: Xalan[25236]: segfault at 18 ip 00007f5b44758cb9 sp 00007fffa8ff33d0 error 4 in libxalan-c.so.110.0[7f5b444d3000+3e2000]

I did a bit of work with this and it would seem the xalan-c-1.10.0-new-xerces-c.patch in xalan-c isn't working as intended.

A simple solution is to upgrade to the latest version of xalan-c and xerces-c: http://www.noodles.net.nz/2013/09/30/xalan-segfault/
