Actually truncated handles should work just fine, the generation
number is simply ignored if it is zero. There may theoretically be
problems when we pass a truncated handle to a 32-bit app that compares
it to a full 32-bit handle stored previously, but this should be
fairly rare behavior. So your crashes are probably caused by something
