Though it certainly didn't fix my "Soldak's games occasionally hang at the main menu" problem, which has so far persisted on two entirely different PCs across all recent iterations of Windows
(XP, Vista and 7 to be precise)...
Shadow, do you think it'd actually help you tracking this down if I posted my application crash details as well?
As I've stated several times before, this is not a game-breaking issue, since most of the time, the games start up just fine. It's still annoying when it happens two or even three times in a row.
