Just for the record.

I solved the database corruption by removing the offending package with rpm -
nothing else worked, not even replacing the database with copies from the
backup. Obviusly, the backups were also corrupt, meaning that the corruption

However, even if the crash occurred outside the rpm code, in my opinion, rpm
shouldn't segfault. The error condition should be detected and the program
stopped with a message as helpful as possible.
