All recent snapshots of TW fail when trying to install using a separate partition for /var. The problem is described in
https://bugzilla.suse.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1060741.

I don't think this is the problem. I have /var on a separate partition too (on several systems) and none of them have problems with recent snapshots. Since the error reported is a segmentation fault, I suspect something else is going on. Have you tried rebuilding the rpm database (rpm --rebuilddb)?

Is the rpm database stored on /var?

/var/lib/rpm/

Unfortunately, rebuilding the rpm database changed nothing; however, it seems that putting /var/tmp on a separate partition would be better than putting all of /var there as I expect to have several versions share that partition.
