For as long as we have ever had a Linux build of teqc, a few users
report various problems like this.  My only suggestion, offered on
on specific for Linux:

"crashes of one or the other build have occurred on various Linux release;
if you have tried the statically-linked build and it crashes, try the
dynamically-linked build, or vice versa"

which is why both dynamically and statically linked builds continue to
be offered.  If we update our compilation machine or you change yours,
it might work or maybe there will be a different problem.  Such is the
way of Linux.
