1.3b freezes under win98, that was hidden in the release notes, bug 192294. Bug was fixed with Build ID 2003021304. You could either wait for 1.3, or download a current nightly, 1.3 or trunk = 1.4a.
See bug 192294 comment 35 for a workaround. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 192294 ***
