Please don't reply to messages from unrelated threads/topics (here:
"shibd segfault on parsing assertion") unless you intend to contribute
to that thread/topic.  Changing the subject is not sufficient,
instead, compose a new email to the list.

Should be
idp.encryption.cert= %{idp.home}/credentials/idp-encryption.crt
Maybe %{idp.home} is not set?
