Hi Matěj,

I don't really have any knowledge about python-xmlsec and you should
probably reach out to the people who wrote/own it.

Said that, looking at the log file for the crash

 > if (a->error == b->error)

which is about here:


Given that this happens deep inside OpenSSL and the only possible
explanation for the crash is corrupted ERR_STRING_DATA, my first
bet would be on issues with different version of OpenSSL used/loaded
by xmlsec and python at compile/runtime. I would double check the logs
to make sure that same version of all dependencies are used, check

My second bet would be on a memory corruption -- I would run valgrind
to see what I can find.
