I might be doing something wrong, but since this used to work 
without any issue, here is a minimal example segfaulting on 3.3-rc1.

> cat 

#include <Eigen/Core>

int main() {
	Eigen::Matrix< double, 3, 2 > block ;
	block.setOnes() ;

	Eigen::Vector2d rhs = Eigen::Vector2d::Zero() ;

	Eigen::Vector3d res = 1. * ( block * rhs )  ;

	return 0 ;

> g++-5 -I eigen-33r1/ -o test && ./test 
Segmentation fault
> g++-5 -I eigen-33b2 -o test && ./test 

Happens with recent versions of gcc and clang
> g++-6 -I eigen-33r1/ -o test && ./test 
Segmentation fault
> clang++ -I eigen-33r1/ -o test && ./test 
Segmentation fault

..but can disappear once optimizations are enabled
> clang++ -O3 -I eigen-eigen-e35a38ad89fe/ -o test && ./test

Regression seems to have been introduced in commit  e35a38a

> g++-5 -I eigen-eigen-e35a38ad89fe/ -o test && ./test 
Segmentation fault
> g++-5 -I eigen-eigen-0b62bc896f80/ -o test && ./test 

Reverting this patch on 3.3-rc1 fixed the issue on my side.

I can confirm this. I assume it is on all platforms that support vectorization.
And you indeed found the offending commit.
Comment 2 Gael Guennebaud 2016-09-26 21:56:22 UTC
Thank you for finding this issue. Fixed:

(the "offending" commit was only revealing a shortcoming elsewhere).
