Symptom

Two "DBCC USEDEXTENTS" (different databases) executing at the same time crashes ASE with signal 11 when trace flags 1631 and 1633 are enabled. We can see the following stacks:

======

1) Signal 11 at buf_sign_pgarray

....
....
Run to completion task iocRunController(NNNNNN) exception 11
nthrd_backtrace
krtctskException
kisignal
buf_sign_pgarray
brfinish
sdfinish_normal
sddone_normal
blkioComplete
kdcProcessCompletions
udcPoll
iocRunController
krtctskRun
ktskRun
kt__RTCMain
thread_create_handler

2) Signal 11 at dbts_ptscmp

...
...
Spinlocks held by taskblock 1000067a608
Spinlock default data cache at address 00000100004fd8NN owned by NNNNNNNNNN
End of spinlock display.
Run to completion task iocRunController(NNNNNN) exception 11
nthrd_backtrace
krtctskException
kisignal
dbts_ptscmp
brfinish
sdfinish_normal


======

When disabling trace flags then we can see a spurious error 823 when executing two command at the same time:

Error: 823, Severity: 24, State: 1
server I/O error detected during read for BUF=BBBBBBBBBBBB, MASS=MMMMMMMMMMMM, Buf#=0, page=PPPPPPPPPP, dbid=NN, Mass vdevno=NNN, vpage=NNNNNN, Buf lpage=NNNN,
