[Bug 510306] vim crashes with "Vim: caught deadly signal ABRT" if i try to execute a python script

I'm using an up to date 11.2 install on a 64-bit system and experiencing the issue documented in bug 510306.

There seems to be no conclusion to this issue in the bug report and a quick search has not revealed any new info either.

Please can anyone point me towards a solution to this issue?
