Simply start DOSBox, and type SUBST at the prompt
with no parameters. DOSBox will close with a
segmentation fault.

    in order to determine the cause (although i though i fixed
    it in 0.62)

    mount a drive and change to it
    then type subst without parameters.

    Same thing in this case - Segmentation Fault (SDL parachute
    deployed). Running on XP Pro SP1. Let me know if I can help
    with further debugging.

    Bug Resolved.

    Mingw changed it's exception handling.
    the libs and dosbox were compiled with different handling.
    That caused the crashes as dosbox needs certain exceptions
    to operate correctly.
