cmd/link: unexpected fault address #38999
What version of Go are you using (
From the stack trace, it looks as though the crash is happening at a fairly early point in the run, where the linker is scanning through all loaded symbols and looking for references to symbols that might be defined in a host object file. What it's doing is not an advanced or obscure maneuver-- loops like this (iterating over symbols looking at relocations) are literally all over the place in the linker.
Given that the problem is not reproduceable, I'm not sure there is much we can do here. One thing you might want to rule out is a faulty memory module (you might consider running a DRAM check on the mac you are using).
