I have seen the same problem with WindowsME for at least a month. All 
you need to do is to run the Windows version of sort 
(c:\windows\command\sort.exe) from a bash prompt. I did that 
accidentally because of a wrong sequence in my PATH string. You get a 
nasty crash every time with a never-ending self-respawning modal error 

Do you want me to send any crash stacks? If so, please provide 
instructions what exactluy I am supposed to produce.
