BDEBUGGER and Spy++

#1
If I start Spy++ (G:\VS2008\Common7\Tools\spyxx.exe) while IDE.EXE is running (and idle), I get "An unhandler Win32 exception occurred in ide.exe" (JIT debugging dialog).

If I say "Yes" (debug with VS2008) ide.exe disappears and the VS2008 debugger comes up empty.

Spy++ is making a (malformed) message call through ide.exe to a Windows API,
which is crashing. Not much I'm going to be able to do about that.

IDE.EXE certainly is unique in that respect.

You can't even catch it with WinDbg. IDE.EXE just disappears and WinDbg doesn't
have a clue what happened.
