  If by "crash" you mean that the program actually terminates (i.e.
not just an error), then this is by definition a bug in data.table --
there is a bug tracker at 
https://r-forge.r-project.org/tracker/?group_id=240 , or you
could try contacting the package maintainer (help(package="data.table")
or maintainer("data.table")
