The only DLL that is at all likely to be involved in msvcrt.dll, but when
you get a crash you should get a dialog telling you in which DLL this
occurred.  (If not you might need to install a `Dr Watson' clone such as
DrMingw: don't ask for further elucidation as this has always worked for
me, even on Windows 95.)

Looking at this on Windows 2000, you have a character (octal 202) in
temp[93, 6] that does not reproduce here.  That is exactly the point in
the rw-FAQ Q2.14 about msvcrt.dll and crashes!

I suspect this is an error in your file.
