Hi, I am experiencing the same issue with Kodi 18.5 and Xubuntu 19.10 with similar stack traces to joe-yasi. Is there anyway to install the updated package via Ubuntu updates?

Ubuntu 19.04 upgraded alsa-plugins to 1.1.8. For alsa-plugins >= 1.1.7, the ALSA jack plugin is enabled by default in /etc/alsa/conf.d/50-jack.conf. The crashes are caused by a race condition when kodi's audio engine thread is enumerating the ALSA sound devices, and the udev thread is enumerating the udev devices triggered by the sound device add from turning the AVR on. When enumerating the ALSA jack plugin device, it tries to connect to connect to jackd. Since I don't have jackd installed, it fails to connect. libjack closes the socket on error, and then closes it again in it's cleanup code. Since it's closing the same file descriptor twice, it interacts with other threads that have potentially opened file descriptors, and causes the crash. This same bug could potentially affect other multi-threaded programs that enumerate ALSA devices.
