The crash occurs in OS X's libsystem_info on 10.8.

It's also reproducible back on OS X 10.6 crashing there in libSystem. (It looks like earlier versions of OS X don't support the AI_NUMERICSERV flag.)  So it would appear to be a long-standing OS X bug.  Possible actions: open an Apple incident and patch socket.getaddrinfo to catch this case.
