Check the end of the /var/log/YaST/y2log file, there should be
something about the crash. At least in which part is crashed.
You can also try to find it using "time" in logs.

No, there is nothing there. As I said, YaST crashes *before*
touching the logs in any way.

Anyway, if you were running some YaST module after this crash,
you will not find it at the end of the logfile. Additionally,
logs are rotated. So, you might have to check also y2log-1,
y2log-2 ...

Yes, I did this. There is nothing there, because YaST crashes
before touching the logs.

If there is nothing in the log, you can also try to reproduce it
with debugging turned on:
1.) mv /var/log/YaST2/y2logs /var/log/YaST2/y2logs.backup
2.) openSUSE_machine:~ # Y2DEBUG=1 yast2

Then attach the resulting y2log file. It should not contain any
confidential information.

I did exactly this, includng the Y2DEBUG as you suggest, and
/var/log/YaST2 was still totally empty. Nothing to attach.
