Thanks :)  Somewhat ironically, my SP2 CD arrived in the post yesterday, so
I'm able to check this out now, as well.  (The distributed 1.0 binary also
appears to work fine).

Agreed.  I've made similar comments in the tracker - my best guess is that
the OP tried it once, thought "a ha - I know how to fix this", replaced the
.dll and it worked.  However, that first time could have been some weird
fluke (with this rather unstable machine I get GPF's fairly often, in very
stable apps in unreproducible ways), and the 'fix' wasn't really necessary.

Thanks for checking it out, though :)
