The MSD produced during the Dxxx SRCs and the Vlogs would have details. I seem to recall there are some tools [I forget what they are called; service tool macros?] that could be invoked in SST\DST to identify things like which job\task was using the CPU when the system crashed [in hard-loop cases, that will generally be the job making the system appear to "hang"]. Even knowing very little about the Main Storage Dump, I recall the tooling for just viewing the MSD would enable some great discoveries very easily; the thing I recall reviewing first, always was the "task list".

The only thing that I know was going on was that I pressed F1 on an
error message from a test and then F10 to look at previous messages.

I have had way more than my share of similar coincidences; everyone including myself convinced nothing they did gave origin. Though some were eventually determined to be a direct effect of what I had done... found out by seeing the system crash again after coming back up, and me having repeated the same sequence of events. Once or twice I recall, for seemingly as innocuous work as compared to the F1=Help\F10=Detailed :-Q
