It looks like you sorted out the --auto option (it invokes an update from an earlier gold profile, and hence requires the --gold option as well).
Regarding csaw vs ace --pcfg, they do related but distinct things. Invoking csaw by itself uses only the PCFG to choose a tree. When you use ace with --pcfg, it invokes csaw internally to get that same tree, and then uses the regular ERG (or whatever unification-based grammar you specify) to actually parse the sentence, adding the csaw tree and all the constituents in it as additional possibilities. In some cases the csaw tree will be selected as the best possibility, but more often (I believe) you will get ERG native analyses or frankentrees containing some mixture.
In FFTB, SEGV upon accept/reject is of course not the most desirable outcome. Does that happen no matter which item you are working on, and no matter which analysis you pick?
Slow to reply but still wanting to be helpful,

Since my primary environment is MacOS, and I haven't figure out yet how to make fftb work from a docker container exporting the port to the host MacOS, I wonder if I can help with something to make the ports to OSX available.
