All recent snapshots of TW fail when trying to install using a
separate partition for /var. The problem is described in

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?


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.

I don't think /var can be shared, it contains "variables", files that
depend on each machine.
