| from install:

You should be able to isolate it by using the ASLR debug flags. Once you
get a command line that occasionally crashes, you can set the pax aslr
flags to "fixed":

sysctl -w security.pax.aslr.flags=0x20

Then try a loop like:

set +e
for i in f ff fff ffff fffff ffffff fffffff ffffffff
    sysctl -w security.pax.aslr.flags=0x$i
    echo $i

After that once you find the value that crashes it you can determine
which part of the ASLR is at fault by or-ing in the following flags to
the flags sysctl to disable the particular ASLR feature:

#define PAX_ASLR_STACK          0x01
#define PAX_ASLR_STACK_GAP      0x02
#define PAX_ASLR_MMAP           0x04
#define PAX_ASLR_EXEC_OFFSET    0x08
#define PAX_ASLR_RTLD_OFFSET    0x10

For example:

sysctl -w security.pax.aslr.flags=0x21

Will keep the "fixed" random number, but not play with the stack.
