Would it be possible for you to stop the normal bbstored daemon and run it 
like this instead:

 	nohup bbstored -DVt &

This will run everything in the same process in the foreground and capture 
all the output, hopefully including any crash, in a file called nohup.out.

You may not be able to run it this way because of the limitations: only 
one client connection at a time, and housekeeping makes client connections 
wait until it's finished. If that's a problem, create a copy of 
bbstored.conf with the following line added:

 	StorePort = 2202

And run bbstored like this:

 	nohup bbstored -DVt -c <new-bbstored.conf-file> &

and see if it crashes in that case.

Cheers, Chris.
