seg fault in terminal

For some reason I was getting a Seg Fault whenever I opened a terminal session in MDK 9. I am not sure what caused it, but rebooting solved the problem. But, I'm just curious if there is a way
to find out what exactly was causing the problem, in case it happens again. The Seg Fault happened right before the prompt was printed in any terminal
