Exception 0x6ba is "The RPC server is unavailable".  I have no idea why
this exception is generated at all on your machine.  Usually this is a
first-chance exception only, which can be ignored, but this is the first
time I ever saw this and in the above scenario there's no such exception
expected, so it doesn't get ignored.

Oh well, it would have been helpful if this had been encountered last
week :(
