I have also experienced occasional crashes of speech-dispatcher.  I have a 
system with hyper-threading, and am using an SMP kernel.  I wonder if it 
could be a problem specific to SMP machines?  Maybe, it's some kind of 
race condition.  Increasing the log level may be keeping speech-dispatcher 
so busy writing to the log file that it doesn't have time to get into the 
race condition.  Just my theory.  Any thoughts?
