Forcing crash dump doesn't work

My computer rebooted itself again. (I'm pretty sure now it's a bug in hammer,
from the time when it does it and the left periodic.cunsolerfu files.) I typed
in the disk password, then it finished booting except for X, which failed to
start. I removed the stale lockfile, killed kdm, logged into X, and switched
back to the console to examine the periodic.* files. Suddenly I got a db>
prompt. I switched to my other machine and looked up the website for what to
do next. I typed "panic", and it output a whole bunch of stuff and gave me a
prompt again. I typed "call dumpsys" and it rebooted. But then I found no new
dumps in /var/crash. How do I get one?
I believe in Yellow when I'm in Sweden and in Black when I'm in Wales.
