Hmm.. that might be possible. I ran a database compaction before that. 
When I noticed the crash I saw that the db compaction finished, but it 
might be possible that it still had a handle to the old db file.

How should we proceed from here? Is it possible for me to provide 
further information about that in retrospect?
