hey, I just ran into this just yesterday too, sounds like the same
issue. gdb:

#6  <signal handler called>
No symbol table info available.
#7  0x00007fcfdc8120b5 in brl_conflict_other (lock=0x0, rw_probe=0x7fffab1a3300) at ../source3/locking/brlock.c:233
No locals.

        ret = true
        i = 0
        locks = 0x0
        fsp = 0x7fcfde974a20
        __FUNCTION__ = "brl_locktest"
#9  0x00007fcfdc80e80a in strict_lock_default (fsp=0x7fcfde974a20, plock=0x7fffab1a3300) at ../source3/locking/locking.c:139
        br_lck = 0x7fcfde974870
        strict_locking = 2
        ret = false
        __FUNCTION__ = "strict_lock_default"
#10 0x00007fcfdc86cd7c in vfswrap_strict_lock (handle=0x7fcfde967060, fsp=0x7fcfde974a20, plock=0x7fffab1a3300) at ../source3/modules/vfs_default.c:2293
        __FUNCTION__ = "vfswrap_strict_lock"

For some reason locks is NULL. My band aid wad disabling strict locking.

This is with git master.
