These are memory segmentation faults that are somehow sourced from the
userspace programs redasc2rec and bil2pngDebian, the segfault itself
happening somewhere libc, and caught by the Linux kernel. The errors
numbers are defined here:
http://lxr.linux.no/#linux+v3.6.5/include/asm-generic/errno-base.h

The numbers themselves could be red herrings, though. I would first
install 'libc6-dbg' and try the tips found here:
