There was a segfault in the Python3 tests due to a bug in SWIG,
but that was resolved about a week ago.  If you checked out your
source tree about that long ago, then I'd suggest you change directory
to the top level (inside only the xapian directory) and do:

git pull

That will fetch the latest version and rebuild anything that has

Then you can run just the python3 tests with:

cd xapian-bindings/python3
make check

If it's not that, then can you attach this log file from the tests:
