[dev] Torified surf is unstable

I run surf through tor using 'torify surf'. If I don't add the '-i'
option, it segfaults when searching on Duckduckgo. Even if I add the
'-i' flag, it crashes after some time with messages like
"*** Error in `surf': free(): invalid pointer: 0x095ca248 ***"
or a segmentation fault and often reaches 100% CPU usage. Can you
replicate this situation?

The command prints
[Aug 18 11:55:55] WARNING torsocks[14305]: [syscall] Unsupported
syscall number 240. Denying the call (in tsocks_syscall() at syscall.c:165)

The output of uname -a is Linux gilbert 3.16.0-4-686-pae #1 SMP Debian
3.16.7-ckt11-1+deb8u3 (2015-08-04) i686 GNU/Linux on my system, I'm
running the latest (git) version of surf with the searchengines
