Hi Esteban. Yes, I know the issue does not happen on every XP SP3 box,
because we have Pharo 2 running ok in my work. There is no antivirus
running, and Pharo.exe is the only application that crash on start.
However, I have dumped the crash with standard debuggers, drwatson and
procdump. These are the links if you want to check them with WinDbg or
another tool:


The dump was generated with:
procdump -ma -i c:\Pharo2.0

and then launching Pharo.exe

To check the dump
Dumpchk -a Pharo_130909_075733.dmp

I will continue checking later.
