I know, but I think this is a packaged that is not much used (quite
new), most serious users will likely be reachable from the
traffic-server-users mailinglist, and it's only two options that are not
used by default that changes.

I've hit the bug myself, and I know it's also been reported by others in
the ATS issue tracker.

I've not received any bugreports, and have actually never received any
feedback from any users (adding weight to my assumption that there are
very few users).

v3.0 is still maintained, so the crash bug will likely be fixed.
