Problems in CVS versions of Emacs are better reported to
address@hidden, not here.  This list is for released versions of
Emacs.

First, can you try the latest pretest of Emacs 22.1?  You can find it
here:

  ftp://alpha.gnu.org/gnu/emacs/pretest/emacs-22.0.990.tar.gz

It is more important now to fix bugs in the pretest because we expect
to release v22.1 very soon.  By contrast, v22.1.50 is the development
version that will not be released for at least a few months.

If the above pretest also crashes on 64-bit Windows, the best way to
debug this is to run Emacs under a debugger (GDB if your Emacs was
compiled with GCC or Visual Studio if it was compiled by MSVC).
