This looks very much like what happened to me, only that I wasn't able
to reproduce the crash - and two signers seemed to choke on it but after
passing a first time over the new data....

The key element seems to be the replacement of a record that need an
RRSIG with one of the same name that does not need one (or removing the
one with sig (like DS) while leaving others in place).

Unfortunately these things happen, especially in delegation-centric zones.
