Agreed - I know for my part that besides the length, the fact that it
would need various network operations and make remote connections that
I wasn't sure would work in my environment anyway was enough to keep
me from answering.

It would also help if the OP could include a better definition than
"crash" - are we talking about a Python traceback, or a Win32
application crash?  If the former, then definitely include the actual
traceback information.  If the latter, then more information about the
platform (e.g., Windows OS version at a miminum) would be helpful.
