We've got a similar issue on and 1.8.5-rc1.
On this usually happens while performing transfer on Polycom phone, or while sending faxes.
On 1.8.5-rc1 this happens approximately once a week or two (though that one asterisk is not used for calls at all).
What's similar? No error log in console, neither in logs.

You need to provide the backtrace against a 1.8.x.x version, preferably  1.6.2.x is no longer supported for ordinary bugs and isn't even the most bug-fixed 1.6.2.x version.

The crash is related to the output of RTP quality statistics at the end of a call.

Thank you for your bug report. In order to move your issue forward, we require a backtrace[1] from the core file produced after the crash. Also, be sure you have DONT_OPTIMIZE enabled in menuselect within the Compiler Flags section, then:

make install

After enabling, reproduce the crash, and then execute the backtrace[1] instructions. When complete, attach that file to this issue report.

Hi all

Thank you for your responses!
Today the crash reproduced, and following your instructions (DONT_OPTIMIZE was enabled when I attached the first backtrace) I'm attaching the new backtrace.
As well as this, asterisk displayed in console this two lines:
"asterisk ended with exit status 139"
"Asterisk exited on signal 11"

Thanks to all again

Per the Asterisk maintenance timeline page at http://www.asterisk.org/asterisk-versions maintenance (bug) support for the 1.4 and 1.6.x branches has ended. For continued maintenance support please move to the 1.8 branch which is a long term support (LTS) branch. For more information about branch support, please see https://wiki.asterisk.org/wiki/display/AST/Asterisk+Versions.  After testing with Asterisk 1.8, if you find this problem has not been resolved, please open a new issue against Asterisk 1.8.
