It seems that LilyPond bombs out.  Why, that's hard to tell without
access to the .ly's.

It would be helpful if you could post (or put on a website) the .ly's
that give the problem.  We'll have to find out where the problem is,
lilypond, lilypond for windows, guile for windows, some strange thing
when combining your .ly's, hardware problems.

If you can't post the .ly's, there's a more difficult route.  I could
make a lilypond version available that has debugging info, and you
could run lilypond under gdb (the debugger), so that we may see what's

You could also try the newly available, but still experimental,
lilypond-1.5.60, and see if that works.  See
