Have you considered that it might be your computer that actually
throws the match into the barrel in the first place?  Could it be that
a 3rd party library or any other obscure inconsistency (impossible to
happen on your system, of course!) could cause lshw to lock your
system? Maybe it's a bug in some app that locks your system when lshw
probes it...

Have you checked logs to try and debug it?
