The stack shown in the trace in the crash you cited clearly shows that its
crashing in the PKCS#11 module's C_Initialize function.  
You need to report this to the Mac people responsible for that PKCS#11 module.

Did that last year;  Apple bug # is #5179294 if anyone is interested, updated today with a reference to this issue.  I'm looking to shake something loose over there as well.
