[rspec-users] RCov / RSpec segfaults on Ubuntu

I appreciate that this is not an RSpec question, but I wondered if
anyone out there can offer some pointers. We're using the latest
versions of RSpec and RCov, and ruby --version says this (on the
Ubuntu build server):
ruby 1.8.6 (2008-07-17 patchlevel 279) [x86_64-linux]
We're getting intermittent (yes, intermittent!) segfaults from the
build when running code coverage.
It works on my (OS X 10.4) machine ;)
I can't see how to report bugs with RCov - the FAQ 'your question
here' doesn't offer my anywhere to type anything. It's also
suggested elsewhere on the site that you can report issues on the
release notes page, and I can see plenty of other peoples'
feedback, but again I can't see any way to offer any of my own.
I must be missing something really obvious here - can anyone help me
to get in touch with whatever RCov 'community' exists?
Failing that - any good resources / tips for working around these
segfault issues - any 'no go areas' we can just avoid in our specs? I
noticed, for example, that one of our projects consistently
segfaulted on this line:
[BUG] Segmentation fault
Any pointers greatly appreciated.
