I'm not using init, but I do observe random crashes of processes
(sometimes sh.exe, sometimes perl, sometimes others) with not-very-useful
stackdumps.  I don't have more information at the moment, so didn't report
this to the list.  It seems to be correlated with heavy memory usage on
the machine.  I'll post when I have any debugging info.
