It doesn't crash AFAICT, but many parts are hit by this. I tried to find
all those parts. Here is what I found:

 * frmMain::CheckAlive
 * frmMain::RestoreEnvironment
 * frmMain::ConnectToServer
 * frmQuery::GetServerColour
 * frmGrantWizard::AddObjects
 * slCluster
 * dlgRepCluster
 * dlgSelectConnection::Go

They all need a fix. Not a really hard one, it seems pretty obvious for
each one of them. But I'm afraid of the ones I didn't find yet.

Will work on this, and the combobox.
