    Exec log_info("RecordNumber: " + $RecordNumber);

<Route r>
    Path        eventlog => out


(during troubleshooting, I have narrowed down the query to one eventsource and also added

Exec log_info("RecordNumber: " + $RecordNumber);

to be able to pinpoint the exact entry that causes the issue. I was able to locate the entry that causes the crash. The strange thing is, it sometimes goes through, most of the times causes crash. I am not comfortable with sharing the entry here but I can send it via e-mail. This definitely looks like a bug.
