Hi, just a user here - but I tried this to see if I could reproduce it and 
could not- sorry.

My environment: Python 2.4.4 and Python 2.5.1, Windows XP SP2, Visual 
Studio Beta 2, the released version of .net 3.5 and IP 2A6.  In the VS 
command line with either version of python I do not get a crash.  To be 
clear I am going to the VS Beta2 Command Prompt, cd'ing to the IronPython 
2A6 directory and launching ipy.exe.  Then I import sys, sys.path.append 
either c:\python24\lib or c:\python25\lib and import os.  Is that what you 
do when it crashes?  What version(s) of python are you trying this with? 
Could it be that the length of the path after going to the VS command line 
might be causing issues somewhere?  You might want to tell them what the 
results of entering 'path' at the VS command prompt are.
