This is the first we've heard of linux_proc_maps causing a segfault. It has

And some Linux samples linked to from here:

In particular, there is a DFRWS 2008 memory sample for Linux and you'll
find the CentOS profile on the profile page. Its a bit difficult to
remotely debug a segfault, but if you find out any more details about the
issue, feel free to report them.
