Yes, I'm using VMWare to test the XWin after build. I never noticed such 
a bluuscreen, but I never run tests as netscape. 

Now I've done it and it works fine.

Host: SuSE Linux 7.0 / Kernel 2.2.12
Guest: Win2000 Professional 
VMWare: 2.0.3
XWin: 2-3 Weeks old CVS Snapshot

or are you using the other way? Windows host and Linux guest OS?
