I recently installed 1.7.29 on a new Win7/64 laptop.  Every day or so,
get a "fatal error" dialog from emacs-w32.  It asks me if I want to
it, but I'm not sure what info I could pull from gdb that would be

Is this a known problem?

Is there any useful information I could provide?

I installed the test version, and it hasn't crashed once

Since I reported this, I've seen it crash several times now, but it
doesn't give the usual "Debug?" dialog, it just goes away.  It's died
several times today.  I'll start running it from gdb to get a stacktrace.

As before, it would be good to know if it crashes when started with the
-Q option.

Just so I'm clear, if I use "-Q" that doesn't load anything, so I can't really do much with that.  I can run it, and I can tell you if it ever fails, but it seems unlikely it ever will, because I can't really do anything with it.

So far, I haven't seen the Q instance fail, when my regular instance has failed several times.

This strongly suggests that something in your .emacs is triggering the problem. I think you'll have to do some experimentation to figure out what it is. If you want to send me your .emacs off list, I'll see if I spot anything suspicious.
