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.
