This is an LVM volume on a single SSD. I've include fdisk, mount and lvm 
output at https://gist.github.com/dlundquist/1d94dd938f03c5d06a2b. 
Another clue might be that I'm using ecryptfs to encrypt my home directory.

Since the system is still half way responsive after this occurs, is 
there any other information I can gather after if occurs to aid in 
diagnosing this?

Thanks,
