Here is some interesting info.  I linked in dmalloc from  http:// 
dmalloc.com/  in an effort to try and find some memory problems.    
However, it does not crash now.  It works with dmalloc linked in.    
All of the queries that before would crash work when dmalloc is  
linked in.

As of 11pm Friday evening (still Friday here) I do not know what to  
do anymore.  I will leave it for a short while and then see what I  
can find.
