Crash when linking statically with tbb on OS X

Crash when linking statically with tbb on OS X

When I build and link to a static version of libtbb on OS X using gcc, my program crashes when constructing tbb::task_scheduler_init.

Here's the details of my environment:

$ uname -a

It builds from

I attached the coredump, executable, and source code. To build and run the executable on OSX with homebrew, run

brew install gcc
brew install bazel
cd tbb-crash

Also, backtrace from core

Any updates on this? Was there anything else needed to debug?

The program is pretty minimal

#include <tbb/task_scheduler_init.h>
#include <iostream>
#include <cstdlib>
#include "a.pb.h"

using namespace tbb;

int main(int argc, char* argv[]) {
  A a;
  tbb::task_scheduler_init tbb_init{};
  std::cout << a.DebugString() << "\n";
  return 0;

It works if you don't link in protobuf, but there definitely seems to be an issue otherwise. Could you please advise what the problem is? I don't believe I'm doing anything wrong here.
