I thought crashing bugs were generally considered security bugs.  With a reliable crashing bug exploiting a reasonable module (e.g. not ctypes) you can crash Python instances in hosting services.  If those instances are shared with other users (e.g. Google App Engine) you can cause a temporary DOS.  At least, that's the theory as I understood it...!
