Here's a backtrace of the crash in 0725:

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

6393          writedvi ( halfbuf , dvibufsize - 1 ) ;

6397          printfilename ( 0 , outputfilename , 0 ) ;
6398          print ( 285 ) ;
6399          printint ( totalpages ) ;

Obviously the change of \pdfoutput confuses pdfTeX.
