I found a bug in the folder browsing code and have fixed it; it would
probably cause strange crashes like this.  I've committed the change
to r-patched, and will be putting a build that incorporates this
change (and some others) online at 


as rw1071.exe in a couple of hours from now.  Could those of you who
have been able to reproduce this crash try out the fix?  Thanks.
