This occasionally happens when I start up.

% emacs
Fatal error 11: Segmentation fault
zsh: abort      /Applications/

It also happened yesterday when I tried a similar command.

Usually, emacs takes a long time to load (it is usually after I have not
used it, or it's my first time using it that day or in a couple days)
and then I get this error.

The next time it opens up fine.

Let me know if I can do anything to help trace the issue.
