Any idea why this could be happening? Does it happen on the Motorwhatever exploit?

I think the way HBL works in general, there is a risk a thread crashes in the first seconds when loader.c is doing it's stuff.
That's what is happening, I would say.

One possibility, assuming syscall estimation really isn't working anymore in 6.60, would be to remove the code for syscall estimation, and move all the "memory.c" code back into oader.c. The goal being to do the memory cleanup as soon as possible

If you need US PSN Codes, this technique is what I recommend.

From how you word that I assume the crash does not happen on a real PSP?

No, I mean I have seen this happening in various games and never actually investigated what was going on.
On Motorstorm for example, this happens maybe once every 10 attempts or something, so I decided I wouldn't investigate.

Ok so most likely something to do with threads and concurrency.
