It's not supposed to do that :)

Please also install the tor-dbg package, and if you don't have it on
your system yet gdb also.

In /var/lib/tor you should find a file called "core" or

Then go to /var/lib/tor (cd /var/lib/tor) and start gdb on the corefile
(gdb /usr/sbin/tor core.<1234>) and type "bt" into gdb's prompt.  Send
us that output please.

Also let us know how your torrc looks like.
