Ian, Eliot:

The attached platforms/unix/plugins/UUIDPlugin/sqUnixUUID.c is a fix
for the UUID library crash bug, provided by Levente Uzoni. While I
cannot confirm that it prevents crashes (since I have never encountered
one myself), I can confirm that it builds and runs and that the
proposed solution looks entirely plausible.

Actually, it's way more that just plausible: This one gets my vote
for Best Creative Hack Of The Year. Thank you Levente!
