I'm investigating apport issue 1505368 and would like to reproduce the situation after an application crash where the apport dialog pops up asks to restart or close the crashed application (and optionally to open a bug report which isn't working in my case).

What's the easiest way to achieve this situation? Is there a test segmentation fault package which I can install? Do I have to produce a simple C program myself (e.g. with int a = *((int*)1))?

apport seems to detect failure of interpreters (e.g. python3) due to syntax errors if the script doesn't match the interpreters language (e.g mysql-workbench), i.e. python3 `which mysql-workbench` triggers apport to suggest reporting a bug.
