XeTeX is still using the old (and more fragile) Graphite engine,
LibreOffice switched to the new (and more robust) one AKA graphite2. So
the segmentation fault is likely from the Graphite engine, so you may
try reporting it to SIL people (but sadly, that won't help you

As a side note, if anyone more knowledgeable about Graphite wants to
work on switching XeTeX to the new engine, I'd be glade to help.
