[Ntop] ntop crashes (segfault error)

I sent two pcap files directly to Luca.
In the meantime I compiled and installed ntop on another server to verify that there isn't a problem if the recording of the probe and the analysis of the flow takes place on the same server. Unfortunately there was the same behavior as before: After some seconds, ntop crashes...
In /var/log/messages I found to following information:
Feb 9 12:24:59 dtsmo1 kernel: [ 2858.708801] ntop: segfault at 19e ip 00007fae8933de8e sp 00007fae7ff58310 error 4 in libntopreport-4.1.2.so[7fae8930e000+7f000]
Feb 9 12:25:07 dtsmo1 kernel: [ 2866.394141] ntop: segfault at 18 ip 00007fae8893b76c sp 00007fae7ccc38b0 error 4 in libc-2.11.1.so[7fae888c4000+17a000]
nProbe was started with the following parameters on the existing server:
sudo /usr/local/bin/nprobe -V 9 -i eth0 -n 192.168.1.97:2055 -T "%IPV4_SRC_ADDR %IPV4_DST_ADDR %IPV4_NEXT_HOP %INPUT_SNMP %OUTPUT_SNMP %IN_PKTS %IN_BYTES %FIRST_SWITCHED %LAST_SWITCHED %L4_SRC_PORT %L4_DST_PORT %TCP_FLAGS %PROTOCOL %SRC_TOS %SRC_AS %DST_AS %SRC_MASK %DST_MASK %L7_PROTO %L7_PROTO_NAME" -b 1
Is there a list of all dependencies for ntop and nProbe? I just want to make sure that I don't forget anything and this is the reason for the problem.

are you able to capture enough packets sent by nProbe to ntop (full packets please) and send them to me on a pcap file so I can reproduce the bug?

> Unfortunately I was not able to find out why ntop crashes. There are a lot of search results for 'segfault libc-2.11.1.so' in Google, but no one with a solution - at least I didn't found it ;) Are there any other logs (maybe from ntop itself) which probably give me additional information? What could be the problem?

Afterwards I compiled and installed nProbe Pro and ntopl. Attached you'll a list with each step and the corresponding commands - maybe I forgot an important one?
