It's not interesting, it's a VM defect - one of many that will forever exist. Upgrade to the latest version and reproduce it, then file a bug report.

Sorry if it isn't helpful...I had never seen this before, so I didn't know what to do with it.

It happened when I was trying to use RescaleOp on a BufferedImage;

The VM is using native code which can cause a segmentation fault (Java code cannot). If you own that native code, you need need to fix it. If it belongs to VM (as in this case), the VM vendor needs to fix it. It may have already been fixed (since you aren't using the latest update) so try with the latest, document if it consistently reproducible, etc. and produce a bug report.

If you've never seen a NullPointerException, then you've never used Java before.
If you've never seen a segmentation fault, then you've never used C before.
