SecurityAgent crashes - what the hell

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
What are possible reasons if the SecurityAgent crashes?

I've got only one clue: i recently stored an app into one user account (doc folder) which has no admin privileges. But the app possibly need and seek some library files (and what not), which are stored in the root library. Could that be the reason why SecurityAgent crashes?

The symptoms of a SecurityAgent crash are ugly like hell. So, the finder crashes constantly like an infinite loop. The entire UI becomes unuseable, every click to whatever file, folder, button creates another finder crash. Finally it is impossible to log in/out, shut down the machine etc pp. You have to hard reset the computer by holding the startup button.

hints appreciated
