Steve,

- Does this behavior occur only in the standalone?
- What version of the product are you using?
- Can you try it with the 2.7.5 beta 1? Get it at 
http://support.runrev.com/beta_test.php
- Does it crash 100% of the time?
- If so, can you file a bug on it and attach your stack/standalone:

Thanks!
