When this happens, and with the apps I'm running I'm not low on  
memory, ~500MB free (green) memo.

It's the Terminal that crashes, but I can still run say Activity  
Monitor, but force quit wont work, it looks like it just drops it's  
parent. After this, other apps that I guess use shell-commands start  
crashing one after the other..

Have found some other people on div forums that have similar  
problems . All on Intel... No answers though.

My only solution is to not be so quick on the keyboard, like doing a  
find, and then cmd-z undo before the find completes. That kind of  
sequences seem to crash almost any cocoa app...
