Your patch is fine by me. Go ahead with the commit.
For later, we really should find the absolute path and then load the dll
only from our own installation folder. But that should wait (i.e. on
trunk, not to be merged back to 1.4.x).

The crashrpt.dll is only installed with official releases where I keep
the debug symbols. It's not installed in nightly builds.
