Of course, unplugging the device from the USB port stops the crashing,
because the crashing starts when the device is plugged in to begin

If "Linux" is programmed to use a particular area of memory that makes
it crash, then this is a software related issue, isn't it?

Isn't there a log file somewhere that can confirm what the problem is,
whether or not it is hardware related, or at least which package the
crash is related to?
