Perhaps the filesystem server dies? Try repeating the crash on a
non-root filesystem, so that the entire machine doesn't go down.

from glibc docs:
- Macro: int SIGLOST
Resource lost. This signal is generated when you have an
advisory lock on an NFS file, and the NFS server reboots and
forgets about your lock.
In the GNU system, `SIGLOST' is generated when any server
program dies unexpectedly. It is usually fine to ignore the
signal; whatever call was made to the server that died just
returns an error.
