Really interesting. Is this reproducible? If yes, it´s worth a bug
report. Could you start a new bash with strace and/or gdb and make
it crash? (Not that *I* could debug it...)

And you say it locked up your system: does Ctrl-Alt-Del still work?
If not, does Alt-SysRq work (see ./Documentation/sysrq.txt in your
kernel source; requires a 2.2.x kernel)?
