confirmation/information on tor failure with weird crashes due to "OpenSSL version from headers does not match"

As I reported here:
kernel tried to execute NX-protected page - exploit attempt?
(find the OpenSSL no-match headers tor log lines near bottom)
but it's also about crashes I've had earlier/later, same issues page, but numbers #13, #17, #18, #19, and #21,
all my crashes vanished once I disabled tor.
Can you pls look up those crashes and confirm if the reason is as I suspect (from same log, just earlier, that line repeated for weeks :) ... ouch!):

Dec 07 04:25:47.000 [notice] Tor (git-2b1e823d7bc05a37) opening new log file.
Dec 07 04:25:47.859 [warn] OpenSSL version from headers does not match the version we're running with. If you get weird crashes, that might be why. (Compiled with 1010006f: OpenSSL 1.1.0f 25 May 2017; running with 1010007f: OpenSSL 1.1.0g 2 Nov 2017).
Dec 07 04:25:47.885 [notice] Tor (git-2b1e823d7bc05a37) running on Linux with Libevent 2.0.21-stable, OpenSSL 1.1.0g and Zlib 1.2.8.

I know this is about package maintainance, but if I got the right cause here, can you pls. direct us where to look for explanation, more information how this come about. Thank you!

Hm. Those don't look like the kind of crashes I'd expect to see from a mismatched openssl version. If that were going to cause a bug, it would probably crash in something more related to header layout.
