Surprisingly, a much simpler version with just one bytearray seems to run stably (for several minutes at least), but when you wait a while then hit Ctrl-C, you are getting a Segmentation fault:

Python 3.4.0 (default, Apr 11 2014, 13:05:11) 
[GCC 4.8.2] on linux
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import random
>>> buf1 = bytearray()
>>> data = b"1234567890123"
>>> while True:
...     buf1 += data
...     l = len(buf1)
...     n = random.randrange(1, l-1)
...     del buf1[:n]

^CSegmentation fault (core dumped)

The same code crashes spontaneously (without attempting a keyboard interrupt) when run in IDLE.
