No crash is not expected. Please could you test with attached patch 
"0011-engine-do-not-load-certificate-if-key-is-not-support.patch" .

Yes, but progress is slow.
First I will post one release from 7.x series, then I would like in 8.0 
to implement x509v3-ssh-{dss|rsa} public key algorithms from RFC 6187 
and after this
in 8.1 x509v3-ecdsa-sha2-* .
