[Freeswitch-users] crash-protection and monit

Crash protection catches segmentation faul signals and try to kill  
that thread only. It works for "stupid" errors like a null pointer  
dereference, but in most scenarios, a crash means something in the  
process memory was corrupted. Ignoring it will just make it crash  
later on, thats why the default is false.

Now if you have a crash, you should update to svn trunk and if it  
still happens, report it on Jira ( see http://wiki.freeswitch.org/wiki/Reporting_Bugs 
  ) so someone can look at it and fix it.
