I am unable to reproduce the crash in OpenFOAM-4.x but the VoF does go unbounded in the early stages of the run which can cause problems. I am looking for cause of the unboundness and found that for the max Co of this run
it is necessary to increase nLimiterIter and also thetolerance of pCorr is not tight enough. I am now running with:
        nAlphaCorr 3;
        nAlphaSubCycles 1;
        cAlpha 1;
        icAlpha 0;

        MULESCorr yes;
        nLimiterIter 15;
        alphaApplyPrevCorr yes;

        solver smoothSolver;
        smoother symGaussSeidel;
        tolerance 1e-10;
        relTol 0;
        minIter 1;

        solver GAMG;

        smoother DIC;

        tolerance 0.001;
        relTol 0;

and the boundness is much better.

The important change is "tolerance 0.001;" on pcorr and with this boundedness of alpha is significantly improved. I have pushed this change into OpenFOAM-4.x, let me know if it helps your run.
