"Signal 11" is a pretty generic error. Fixing one bug that resulted in
a signal 11 doesn't mean that we've fixed all of them.  It may be the same 
bug, it certainly may not be. 

There have been people with bugs that we could tell were fixed in 6.8 
and we advised those people to upgrade. I don't think we know what your
bug is yet, so we can't say for certain if it's fixed in 6.8. 

We'd certainly advise you to upgrade to 6.8 anyway and see if it goes
away there - if the bug has gone away then there's no work to do, and if the
bug is still there then we'll try and fix it for 6.8.1. We're not planning
on a 6.6.12.
