           Summary: PAF 5 help viewer triggers unhandled page fault at
                    address zero (nullpointer)
           Product: Wine
           Version: 1.1.38
          Platform: x86
        OS/Version: Linux

          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: -unknown
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org

This is stdout/stderr from a crash run.

This is a regression, but I don't see where to mark it as such.

With Wine 1.1.38, in PAF (Personal Ancestral File) 5, bringing up the help
viewer causes a crash with an unhandled page fault at address zero (appears to
be a nullpointer access).  Wine 1.1.37 and earlier did not have this problem.

Application installation was done by following the HOWTO on the AppDB page for
PAF 5.  I used PAF5AllLangs.exe.  During installation, I checked the box to
install the International Unicode Font.  I also checked the box to _not_ view
the 'Getting Started' document during installation.  Installation finishes,
apparently successfully.

The application did fine through all my usual short-version checks with a new
Wine version.  It was only when I clicked on the yellow question mark to bring
up the help viewer (which uses Wine Gecko) that there was a problem.  The crash
appears to happen the same whether I do 'New' to create a new empty file or use
an existing file.  I have tried two different existing files with no change to
crash behavior.  I tried bring up the help viewer before vs. after doing some
other things in the application with no change to crash behavior.

I will try to attach stdout/stderr from a crash.  I'd love to be able to do a
regression run, but I just cannot afford the time.
