I don't have a reliable way to reproduce it. I've tried to replay the
logs for hours, but no success. And I've hit it only three times:

-rw-r----- 1 346004 Apr 19 02:36 crash-qemu-23-1461026201572599961
-rw-r----- 1 393438 Mar 27 08:24 crash-qemu-8-1459059850150353721
-rw-r----- 1 393439 Mar 10 19:44 crash-qemu-16-1457635446972474955

I will merge the patches and restart the fuzzer. It will be difficult
to conclude whether it fixes the bug or not, but at least it will test
the patches.
