There seem to be a source for "TeX Live 2019/dev/Debian" somewhere
and one user on ubuntu 16.04. reported in the comments a segfault
for xelatex:


This is XeTeX, Version 3.14159265-2.6-0.99999 (TeX Live
2019/dev/Debian) (preloaded format=xelatex) restricted \write18

(while the binaries looks ahead of their time, latex and babel are
not up-to-date).
