I doubt I'll be able to reproduce this.

Can you run with the debug version of the drivers, and use debugview from 
sysinternals (you'll need to turn on some logging options in the registry - let 
me know if google doesn't help you find them).

Then, when the crash happens, send me whatever debugview has captured.

The debug version of the drivers is a little slower though, so this may not be 
an option.

I'll be uploading an update in a few days so maybe wait until then to test (it 
won't fix your problem but it's easier if you run the latest version)
