I also get the same VM crash following the above steps using Squeak 1.23
on NT 3.51.

The dump file said:
    Current byte code: 0
    Primitive index: 88
    Stack dump follows:
        8360392 [] in BlockContext>newProcess

While on the subject of VM crashes... A while ago I had 3 VM crashes in
3 days. I don't know what caused them and couldn't seem to reproduce
them at the time. As I recall, I was just browsing around, doing things
like highlighting text and asking for the senders or implementors. The
dumps were all the same:
    Current byte code: 224
    Primitive index: 128
    Stack dump follows:
This was also Squeak 1.23 on NT 3.51. Does anyone have any insight on
what might be causing such crashes?
