I believe it as to do with registering the MIBs more than once. My
colleague has been able to resolve this by unregistering the MIBs
"properly". I say properly because they were being unregistered but I
don't think it was being done the right way. At least the new way
certainly doesn't cause the crash.

Are there any detailed examples on how to unregister MIBS "properly" ???
I saw some quick tutorial for registering but I don't recall seeing much
info on the unregistering side of things. I will keep looking.

Thanks, Brendan.
