+Nowadays the most often encountered cause of Hurd crashes seems to be lockups
+in the [[hurd/translator/ext2fs]] server. One of these could be traced
recently, and turned out to be a lock inside [[hurd/libdiskfs]] that was taken
and not released in some cases. There is reason to believe that there are more
faulty paths causing these lockups.
