With which version of GDAL ? Is it compiled with internal libtiff or external libtiff ? Could you give an output of gdalinfo on your source dataset and the gdaladdo command that triggers the crash?

Support for BigTIFF overviews (> 4 GB then) has been added only in trunk (GDAL 1.7.0dev). See ticket #2785.

I've tested with GDAL 1.6.1 and internal libtiff to create a 5 GB overview and I don't get a crash, but libtiff errors of course. Perhaps the crash is due to older gdal/libtiff.
