Mysqldump crashes XtraDB Cluster 5.6.19-25.6 local node

I upgraded our 3-node galera cluster to 5.9.19-25-6 yesterday. The upgrade itself went flawlessly after pinning the repository to counter the Debian 7 version mixup. I ran a few tests afterwards and put the cluster back into production. Unfortunately, at about 5am monitoring alerts aborted my sleep, 2 out of 3 nodes were down. After I examined the logs, I figured both nodes crashed just after executing our backup routine.

I took one node to reproduce the problem. I can regularly crash a local node issuing this command (used to work for previous versions just fine):

mysqldump --verbose --single-transaction --routines --triggers --skip-lock-tables -u root testdb > test.sql

std err from mysqldump:

-- Connecting to localhost...
-- Starting transaction...
mysqldump: Couldn't execute 'START TRANSACTION /*!40100 WITH CONSISTENT SNAPSHOT */': Lost connection to MySQL server during query (2013)

node3.err log entry:

09:42:48 UTC - mysqld got signal 11 ;
This could be because you hit a bug. It is also possible that this binary
or one of the libraries it was linked against is corrupt, improperly built,
or misconfigured. This error can also be caused by malfunctioning hardware.
We will try our best to scrape up some info that will hopefully help
diagnose the problem, but since we have already crashed,
something is definitely wrong and this may fail.
Please help us make Percona XtraDB Cluster better by reporting any
bugs at

It is possible that mysqld could use up to
key_buffer_size + (read_buffer_size + sort_buffer_size)*max_threads = 1396126 K bytes of memory
Hope that's ok; if not, decrease some variables in the equation.

Attempting backtrace. You can use the following information to find out
where mysqld died. If you see no messages after this, something went
terribly wrong...

Some pointers may be invalid and cause the dump to abort.

Since we’re currently running without backups, any quick help is highly appreciated. Please tell me if you need any more information.

Any info from percona on when 5.6.20-25.7 (containing the fix) will be released would be nice.
