Does anyone know where I might be going wrong with expect?

Using it with B20.1 under W98, I get the following error whenever I call

EXPECT caused a stack fault in module KERNEL32.DLL at 015f:bff724c1.

I've tried to spawn various processes including executables that come
with cygwin
and a program freshly compiled with gcc, always with the same result.

I have some working expect code on solaris that I'd like to port.

I looked in the archives and found a few mails on expect problems, but
couldn't find an answer.
