In Rgui when attempting to resize the console the system locks for a second
(cursor locks up, etc) and then either returns to normal for a second before
crashing or just crashes when we start moving again (the former happens more
often when making things bigger, the latter when the console is shrunk). The
error message reports an attempt to read 0x000000 so I'm guessing the problem is
somewhere in the Rgui console's memory management code.

I can duplicate this on both my home and lab desktop machines as well as my
laptop. All are running Win2K Server (I take that back--- my lab machine is
running Pro. edition) and all are reasonably updated.
