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.
