Not trivially (assuming you can't fix your DNS provider).  But if you
can use gdb get us a backtrace from that core, the fix will come out a
lot faster.  (Do _NOT_ send the core itself; it has a copy of your
keys in it.)

(To get a stack trace, run "gdb {path-to-tor} {path-to-core-file},
then type "bt".)

But before you do that, I've checked in a possible fix to svn; if you
can let us know whether that works for you, that would also be

Thanks for reporting this, BTW!  Please let us know if you find
anything else.
