The macbook also crashed upon connecting the adapter before I installed the displaylink driver, so I guess this may be an issue to raise with Apple...
This issue should be related to the ethernet part of the Dynadock. You should check or post the kernel panic logs in /Library/Logs/DiagnosticReports. Most likely the kernel panic is caused by the AppleUSBEthernet kext.
If it's an ethernet issue, a possible workaround is to install the ASIX driver ( and see if this solve the issue.
