Don't do that then.

Read the man page:
... any further access (including another call to fclose()) to
the stream results in undefined behaviour.

Returning SIGSEGV is permitted as 'undefined behaviour'. Just consider
yourself lucky it didn't format your hard drive, pee on the carpet, and/or
start global thermonuclear war.
