This is a kernel bug, plain and simple.  OTP and/or HiPE _might_ do
something that triggers it, but that's just coincidental; a correct
kernel must not crash due to (unprivileged) user-space actions.

You don't say what kernel you're running, but you should consider upgrading it.

(Long shot: may also be a bug in the C compiler used to compile the
kernel, but that's extremely uncommon for vanilla distribution
