Most likely my shared sections fix:

	* server/file.c, server/mapping.c, server/object.h:
	Repaired shared PE data sections.

The fix itself should be OK, but it probably reveals other bugs that
were hidden by the fact that the sections were not shared properly
before. For instance if a dll stores window handles in the shared area
it will break since window handles are not shared yet (working on it...)

In your case it doesn't seem to be window handles though, so it may be
worth investigating a bit more.
