Description:My Asterisk has been crashing since February 2011 after I moved from the old Dell PowerEdge and built a new asterisk 1.4.22 server with the exact same software and hardware. I didn't see problems before on the old one and I thought asterisk version might be an issue. so I upgraded to 1.4.35 but it still crashes.

I would appreciate it if anyone can help me figure it out what causes the problem.

the attached file is what I got from GDB core dump.

in addition to that, I found that every time it crashes, there will be error messages in /var/log/messages as shown below
