And I assume that you get no crash as well if you're using the graphical installer. I'm puzzled to reassign this bug report. This is obviously a race condition somewhere. Probably a weird kernel issue but investigating further is....tricky and I fear that this bug report might remain uninvestigated further for quite a while until it "magically" solves in the future with a new kernel (though probably not for Lenny). I propose documenting this in the errata file, at the minimum.
