Have you notice this happening?
Is the build you're using from before 1/29, e.g., M13?  Then this might be a
duplicate of bug 24581.

similiar crashing bug but i have yet to reproduce it
hm, on win98 using the opt bits for 2000022208, i cannot repro this. adding 
paulmac to cc list as he uses win98 more often than me...
This bug seems to have magically dissapeared. Though there still seems to be a
problem associated with highlighting edit fields when this is switched. Will
resubmit as a different bug. No longer crashes though. New bug
