I presume the test that crashes your system is tests/split/l-chunk.sh, which invokes commands like 'split -n l/10 /dev/null' and 'split -n 1/2 /dev/zero'.

This sounds like <http://bugs.gnu.org/11424>, which was reported for GNU/Hurd. Most likely GNU/Hurd is reporting an st_size of OFF_T_MAX for /dev/zero, and this is messing up 'split'. I will look into fixing this; I expect that the bottom line is that split should not trust st_size for special files like /dev/zero.
