The contents of /var/crash can get wiped (this is normal, actually; it's
abnormal when you have things sitting in there), so I'm not too

An inode refers to the filesystem. Maybe your disk is dying? Weird
problems are often caused by hardware failures. Software— algorithms—
are predictable. Faulty circuitry is not.
