I'll give it a shot-- I really should have a debug version of R around
anyway. :-)

Also, of note: It happens at 0x026664ca (as if that helps :-)) and using
the min/max buttons does not cause the crash. Maybe the bitmap code has
some race condition that gets hit at some point? Anyway, classes
permitting, I'll look more closely this week.
