Fatal JRE error

 Hello list,

 we have written a Java application which accesses the Aperio SVS Format 
 using OpenSlide via the java bridge. We use 'libopenslide.so.0.2.4' on 
 64bit Linux and include 'openslidejava.jar' in the Java project. I do 
 not know the version of openslidejava.jar and I don't know how to 
 determine it.

 The application has been working fine for years on many computers, but 
 under all computers running OpenSuSE >= 13.2, it crashes with the 
 following JRE error:

 # A fatal error has been detected by the Java Runtime Environment:
 #  SIGSEGV (0xb) at pc=0x00007f22f92d3a04, pid=10239, 
 # JRE version: OpenJDK Runtime Environment (7.0_51) (build 
 # Java VM: OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (24.45-b08 mixed mode linux-amd64 
 compressed oops)
 # Problematic frame:

 # Failed to write core dump. Core dumps have been disabled. To enable

 # The crash happened outside the Java Virtual Machine in native code.
 # See problematic frame for where to report the bug.
 Java Result: 134

 We installed OpenSlide by copying the libs from one computer to the 
 other manually (/lib64/libopenslide.so.0.2.4 and symlinks), both are 
 64bit Linux as mentioned.

 I have put the hs_error.log file that is mentioned in the message here: 
 (If needed, I can provide a core dump as well, but it is several GB in 

 Tbh I have no idea at all what the error is trying to tell me, and 
 changing the JRE (to v1.6) did not help. To me, the hs_error.log file 
 seems to suggest that the problem lies within OpenSlide, but I am no way 

 Can anybody tell me something about the error? Is it even related to 
 OpenSlide or OpenSlideJava? Is it related to new glibc versions? What do 
 I need to do? Recompile libopenslide on the new system? Get a later 
 version and recompile? Or is it a JVM bug?

 Sorry for the confusion and thanks for your time,
