I have seen this in other versions/platforms as well. Brian Ripley informs me
the segfault is in corStruct.c

Code to reproduce:

n <- 100

# example from Box and Jenkins p. 83
arcoefs <- c(0.8)
macoefs <- c(-0.6)
p <- length(arcoefs)
q <- length(macoefs)

tmp <- corARMA(value=c(arcoefs,macoefs), form=~1, p=p, q=q)
Sigma <- corMatrix(tmp, covariate = 1:n) # segfault
