Are you using 32-bit or 64-bit version of Ubuntu? I have x86_64:

$ uname -mrv
2.6.31-17-generic #54-Ubuntu SMP Thu Dec 10 17:01:44 UTC 2009 x86_64

also updated via command-line a few minutes ago, but it didn't run fmtutil.

Ubuntu has had quite a few updates recently -- is your system current?

It doesn't look like the segmentation fault came from the pdftex format
builds.   I tried a few installs using guiold and didn't enocunter any
nasty behavours.   You might want to look through the logs (dmesg,
messages.log, Xorg.0.log) for signs of trouble elsewhere in the system.
