I'll try to reproduce these myself, but it would be useful if you could
provide more details of how to get these crashes to happen, and a log and
backtrace for each one.

You can get a log and backtrace by installing the ioquake3-dbg, openarena-dbg
and gdb packages, then running this command in a terminal (GNOME Terminal,
Konsole, xterm or equivalent):

    OPENARENA_BACKTRACE=1 openarena 2>&1 | tee openarena.txt

This will output information about the crash to your terminal and save a
copy in openarena.txt.

Please report a separate bug for any other crashes you see where the crash
message or backtrace looks significantly different - it sounds as though you
may have at least two separate crashes here, so I'll probably clone this bug
to give them different bug numbers.
