I never said I wasn't going to fix the bug, and believe me big banks do want their apps to be of high quality, but until the bugs are fixed I want my app to die instead of becoming a zombie. But thanks for your opinion and all others that offered help along the way.

 But really you *should* fix the segfault. Either you know why it happens, in which case you should spot it before it happens and do something sensible, or you don't know why it happens, in which case it could be a serious bug in your code.

 Even if you *do* know why it happens, there may be other bugs in your code that cause segfaults that you *dont* know about, and you'll miss them because you are stupidly ignoring all segfaults.

 Fix the bugs.
