Let's not be too hasty here. Philip found the likely cause of an
assertion failure which may not be well behaved on Windows. But Stefan's
bug report clearly places the crash on a specific line of code which is
*not* an assertion. Yes, a good catch, but maybe not the right catch for
this particular bug. The hunt continues ...
