According to Michael Treacy:
> Ok, here's the question: in general, what causes segmentation faults?
Trying to access memory you don't have access to. You're attempting to
get at some other program's 'segment'. Most common cause is accessing
uninitialized variables - in C terms, using a NULL pointer, for example.
It's too general a question to get a specific answer to, though.
