From the README file:

Release Notes for Version 2.70

A stack overflow was fixed. Under MSWindows, problems with SVG generation and
Xasy installation were fixed. Compiler warning messages were addressed.

Looking at the closed issues, the stack overflow was - with a MWE. The MWE sets the font to Calibri, which I do not have, but using either DejaVu Serif, or Carlito (a metrically compatible substitute for Calibri) I cannot replicate a core dump. Maybe windows-specific.

The report makes it look like it could be macOS specific

Replying to renodr:

The report makes it look like it could be macOS specific

The original report for old versions of asy and gs was certainly on mac. It was the

/u/bowman/asymptote/base/three_surface.asy: 556.11: runtime: Stack overflow
Abort (core dumped)

that made me think windows. But I wasn't paying attention - my run of asy produced an (apparently empty) PDF so I ignored the postscript file.

I've just tried running JB's command on it (with 2.69) and using my own file (I called the asy stackoverflow.asy since that is what was expected to happen) :

$gs -q -dBATCH -P -dSAFER -sDEVICE=ps2write -sOutputFile=/dev/null 
>>showpage, press <return> to continue<<

[ after pressing Enter there is no output and return code is 0 ]

Exactly the same results with 2.70. Using epdfview and expanding the PDF produced by asy I can see that the white is the background for the empty label.
