"Segmentation fault" is a read or write attempt at a memory segment not
allowed to that process. IIRC Windows calls it: "<program> caused a general
protection fault".

I'm only guessing here, but maybe it's the -f option attempting to load a
charmap into the kernel of the host system (or something like that).
