I've never used BitDefender, actually.. I've nver used an AV on linux (no need really)

Segmentation faults are pretty serious, they occur when programs try to write to memory that hasn't been allocated to it, when a program seg faults you can often manipulate the stack in order to gain root privileges. You should try and replicate the cirumstances under which the fault occured and report it to the developers

Which Linux you running?
In Fedora there's a problem with the EXEC shield extension.

If it's Fedora, try
echo 0 >/proc/sys/kernel/exec shield
then start bdc.

Cheers.
