Do you have panic_on_lbug set?

It's easy to LBUG Lustre by interrupting (Ctrl-C/SIGINT/Arrivederci Roma) a
running obdfilter-survey.  Using 1.8.4 on RHEL 5.5:

[root at oss21 obdfilter-survey]# nobjhi=2 thrhi=2 size=1024 case=disk sh
Wed Jan  5 10:51:05 CST 2011 Obdfilter-survey for case=disk from
ost  6 sz  6291456K rsz 1024K obj    6 thr    6 write

[root at oss21 ~]# dmesg
[87251.960393] Lustre: 11759:(echo_client.c:1409:echo_client_cleanup())
