If the plugin weights more than 100 kilograms, this can happen yes
I don't think the amount of data / array has anything to do with it, this would be weird. It's more likely that some extension is causing the crash. For example when you register a callback function in your plugin with some extension and the extension doesn't correctly unregister the callback function on unload, it will probably crash. Make sure to unregister any hooks / callbacks, if the extension provides a way.
A stacktrace from the linux GDB debugger would be helpful in order to exactly determine where is crashes.
