I've moved all new Win32 Lgi application builds to output minidumps when they crash (if Dbghelp.dll is present) instead of trying to create there own stack trace. I just found that it's too unreliable.

Recent Visual C++ builds do a fair job of loading the minidumps and telling you about the conditions of the crash, and I have the free version of 2008 installed on my machine. Surprisingly it even works with apps built with Visual C++ 6, which is still my primary compiler on windows (Speed baby... all speed!).

I will experiment with optionally reporting the crash dumps back to myself when the application re-starts. Hopefully this will reduce the amount of time it takes to get crashes fixed.
