The crash could be due to the QEMU monitor handling problem that was
recently fixed. The problem was that the asynchronous monitor handling
code would free the monitor object in case QEMU crashed or reported an
error. But the asynchronous monitor handling freed the monitor object
while the caller was not aware of this and the caller then accessed
freed memory resulting in a crash.
