Really? (10H I think) 

Several people have seen this in connection with printing, but
crashing directly on startup is new. 

I've been digging through Deja.com, and it suggests that many cases
are caused by some HP printer drivers messing with the FPU control
word and not resetting the flags on exit. 

Does it happen with 1.0.0 too? (I wouldn't set my hopes too high -
we've done nothing to fix this kind of bug).
