I did a lot of testing on a BTM and immediately upon X-ing IDE I got a BSOD!

0x0000008E
win2k.sys: 0xBF841F29

It's the first BSOD I've seen in years and the first on this machine.

I'd be *really* interested to know (1) if this is reproducible, and (2) how
it is that IDE & TCC (which have no ring 0 code) could be implicated in a
BSOD.

If it's reproducible, it won't be easy. I opened/edited/ran/debugged the same
BTM a few times afterward and nothing bad happened. The BTM itself does nothing
fancy ... TYPEs a URL (to file), uses my plugins GREPP, NOTAGS, @AVG, calls one
text-based external (cut.exe).

Do you know what win32k.sys does?

It's the kernel-mode driver for the Windows GUI subsystem. It's called by things like user32.dll, and one of its requirements is that it must never, ever, BSOD.

I got this (below) in the event log. Is the dump of any value to you?

The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x1000008e (0xc0000005, 0xbf841f29, 0xab891604, 0x00000000). A dump was saved in: C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\Mini111310-01.dmp.

I opened the dump in WinDbg ... can't make sense of most of it but did find a
call stack just before the crash.

The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x1000008e (0xc0000005, 0xbf841f29, 0xab891604, 0x00000000). A dump was saved in: C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\Mini111310-01.dmp.

Wouldn't be of any use to me, as none of it is my code and there's no source available to trace it. You either had a memory error or you found a Windows bug (more likely the former).

If it happens again you might want to pass it along to Microsoft.
