I don't know a good way to make them crash, sometimes it is hardware
dependent. I have a P4 (one core of course) with hyperthreading that
is very good at crashing with -j3, but I don't use it much :)

If you have a crash, one way of checking is to look at other distros
to see if they have added '-j1'.  repology can help with this.  For
has -j1 already, so Matteo is not a freak :p

Patrick has a completely different solution:
  make $NUMJOBS || make || exit 1
but because SBo users don't all have big multicore systems, we don't
allow that in SBo scripts ;-)
