[Buildroot] segfault in uClibc- when using busybox ip

I have used buildroot to generate my crosstools, root file system, kernel
(3.6.11) and busybox (1.21.0) for an i386 (Geode) target board. Basically I
am using buildroot to generate everything. I was recently trying to
configure my network but when I invoked the following from the command line

# ip addr show dev eth0

I received the following report of a segfault.

2: eth0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast qlen
    1000 link/ether 00:18:7d:19:a0:d8 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
    inet brd scope global eth0
[  331.700545] ip[951]: segfault at 0 ip b76e1f26 sp bfbd29b0 error 4 in 
Segmentation fault

I have searched these archives for similar reports but I cannot find
anything. I would be very grateful for any advice that anyone who has had a
similar problem can offer, or how I go about trying to establish if this is
down to user error on my part or a bug in busybox/uClibc.
