The issue is now a little irrelevant; I have a tiny program that fails to run 
in the same way as the big one.
Do you want to carry on looking into this to find out what is wrong in the 
winedbg or were you just offering to help me out?
If you want to investigate the winedbg failure I can post something (it will 
probably be big) but otherwise I suggest we drop it (and we can move on to 
the next problem)
