I don't fully grok Windows, does EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION imply a
NULL pointer or just an invalid pointer? If the later then perhaps we
have unitialised, or overwritten, memory and the check above won't
help.

I won't object if someone applies Steve's fix, or something like the
above. I would prefer to understand the cause, but if it remains a
mystery then so be it.
