Any free functions?  Different operating systems handle memory problems in
different ways.  I've always assumed windows is as likely to crash as
anything but it could be that it was hiding a mistake in your code.  If
you can make it crash with a command, gdb and step can find your problem.
If not, then you'll probably have to go through your codewith a fine tooth
