I am not 100% sure what conditions allow it to be triggered on Win32 and
Linux... I certainly did test it on both platforms and I was not able to
reproduce the crash. I am now after publishing the advisory being told by
several people that it DOES work on Win32 (although I still can't trigger
it). So my appologies for suggesting it only works on win32.

Also thanks for the quick fix.
