Floating point exception (core dumped) (v0.91.2)

I use sysmon to monitor SUNET (Swedish University Network) and I have
had very good experience with it. I did upgrade last week to 0.91.2. I
also did turn on the "config showupalso". At first when I started
sysmond all looked ok but when I made a change in the sysmon.conf it
coredumped. I thought that I had made a misstake in the config and
reverted to the old config. But there were still coredumps. I run it
on FreeBSD 3.2. When I tried gdb it came up with the text down
below. I'm not a C-programmer so I thought that someone on this list
maby could help out.
