Niranjan,

I had another crash on 03/31/2006. I submitted a bug request per Jeremy
Allisons' request of a few days ago. It is bug # 3636. As of yet I
don't think it's been looked at. Hopefully someone can help with this
problem. I know there have been more posts about this lately so maybe
it will not get ignored this time around. Keep sending updates and
keeping us up to date. I'll do the same.

Matt
