Thanks for the follow-up, Stefan.

Sure, I can setup a test repository and SSH login credentials for you.
I'll email them to you in a separate correspondence.

Please note that the crash only seems to happen on Windows 8 x64, for
whatever reason. It does not happen on Windows 7 x64, nor does it happen
on Windows 8 x86.

I'll send the additional info to you momentarily.

Thanks again,
