The bug tracking information is currently internal-only, even if you
have a support contract (although for those with a support contract,
there is more help and information available via the support team).

However, if it's useful for you - the underlying feature that makes this
abort possible is in all of 9.8.x and 9.9.x although we don't know why
this crash has only been reported recently (9.9.1), so there could be
other factors involved making it more likely to occur in the latest
releases (but race conditions are often like that).
