I am specifically *not* seeing this on any of my three installes (1
normal + 2 vmware). I've tried with the exact same binary Merlin is
using (and he sees it), and he gets the crash and not me...

Further investigation definitly needed. Let's try to nail down where the
issue started showing up by pulling older cvs versions to identify the
commit. I wonder if this could be related to the pipe patch, since it
appears to show up on win32 only.
