The screenshot basically says that there is no code at the given address.
Looking at the memory map (e.g. via process explorer) confirms that this
is a data section.

Two possible causes come to my mind: stack corruption and a corrupted binary.

Well, in the past, we had massive stability issues during the application
tear-down phase and ascribed them to serf. One thing you might check
even with VS2008 is the thread that crashes. Is it the first one in the
thread list or some other? Usually, they will also report some name.

TSVN tries to be smarter now wrt when a reboot is actually required.
