Here is a short recap of what you can do to debug. I'm not sure how to
help you reproduce your errors though...

1. always start the server from the command line (./ser)
2. try to reproduce the bug from the last save game
3. set saveturns=1

1. have dev tools
2. enable core dumps (ulimit -S -c unlimited)
3. enable debugging symbols in freeciv (./configure --enable-debug=yes)
4. run gdb server/civserver
5. if you get a crash type backtrace (or just bt)
