This is also my guess. (I am guessing that a process dies due to some memory 
allocation/mapping issues and I spotted some potential code candidates.)

Can you explain how a dying process can create such a broken skiplist db?

I was under the impression that due to the transactional nature of skiplist a 
dying process cannot turn the db unusable.
