User code should never crash windows┬╣. Perhaps the user should check
for a faulty device driver or similar operating system problem that
gnus is triggering. Are there any other programs that cause this
problem?

I think from the user's point of view what happens is "I run program x,
the system blue screens, therefore program x is the problem".

>From my point of view what happens is "I run program x, program x
calls device driver y to do something (write to the screen, access the
network ... whatever), device driver y has a problem and blue screens
the system, therefore device driver y is the problem".

Anyway it's not a problem with gnus and therefore not a problem for
this group.
