I never said it crashed my machine. I just pointed out that the supposed
'crash code' didn't crash my computer. As for the exception, no kidding, my
computer kept running just fine right after the test code, so the original
post is one of two things 1) wrong 2) not inclusive on my computer/OS.

No idea, ask whoever wrote from

I believe that 'Coolview' is the recent update/patch series so graciously
put together by Sergey (hope I didn't mangle the name). Unfortunately, I'm
only a learning programer, a win95 user, and someone who has only thought
of dabbling in UNIX/LINUX, so I can't figure out how to apply the patches,
or even what I should have to apply them.

Hope this clears up my point some.
