Hello and Welcome!

Did you try loading acpi_dock(4)? There's little documentation and it isn't specific for thinkpad docks, but a quick glace at the code seems that it does some useful generic stuff which may prevent lockups and crashes.

There's also acpi_ibm(4), but that doesn't seem to do anything with docking stations ... (But it may be useful for other stuff).
UNIX was not designed to stop you from doing stupid things, because that would also stop you from doing clever things.
