Would it be possible to compile syslog-ng with debugging symbols
(CFLAGS="-g" ./configure --enable-debug), and run it with --enable-core?

Looking at the backtrace, we could perhaps know a bit more about why
syslog-ng is segfaulting.

Other than that, I'd suggest either going back to 3.2, or trying the
latest version of 3.3 from git head, as there have been quite a lot of
stability fixes since beta1.
