You have to read the LAPACK code. It says
* INFO (output) INTEGER
* = 0: successful exit.
* < 0: if INFO = -i, the i-th argument had an illegal value.
* > 0: DBDSDC did not converge, updating process failed.
and 1 > 0 so this was a convergence failure inside the SVD code.
Such things are almost impossible to reproduce elsewhere as they depend on
the BLAS and the optimizations done by the compiler.
