Satz, can you provide a backtrace as per the TicketHowTo ?

There's actually a decent backtrace on #7837 which is closed as a dup of this bug.

The backtrace in #7837 makes little sense e.g. pointer is null despite passing a null pointer check. Without a breakpoint on the QAssert there isn't much to go on. Considering that this only affects third party backends which don't have proper protocol support, something that we're proposing to address for 0.23, I'm reducing this to low priority and if we don't get a decent backtrace I'll close in 30 days.

(In [23247]) Potentially fix a segfault when a client pretends to speak a version of the protocol it doesn't support and feeds an incorrect number of arguments to HandleQueryRecorder?. Refs #7708

Probably fixed by [23247]. Without a proper backtrace we may never know.
