This is the most common case of a segmentation fault happening
due to memory programs. Since mkisofs makes extensive use of
memory in a short period of time, it actually happens to
trigger bad memory quite easily.
So, I'd recommend you to check your memory (use memtest86 --
use google for that) for 1 or 2 days.
The fact that it happens randomly each time and that it
freezes your system (does Linux issue an Oops?) seems to be a
stronger evidence in that direction.
