Check out the SIG 11 FAQ in case that is what you mean by make crash.

If you suspect that it could be a problem with bad RAM. Why don't

Software evolves. It isn't designed. The only question is how
strictly you _control_ the evolution, and how open you are to
external sources of mutations. And too much control of the
evolution will kill you. Inevitably, and without fail. Always.
