No luck there...but I am one step closer to tracking down the source of
the problem.

I found that kernel32 is calling RaiseException when the file that is
failing comes up.

So I went to check it out with +seh, this is the exception that comes

trace:seh:raise_exception code=e06d7363 flags=1 addr=0x7ee4ca80
trace:seh:raise_exception  info[0]=19930520
trace:seh:raise_exception  info[1]=00334aec
trace:seh:raise_exception  info[2]=100f7058
trace:seh:raise_exception  eax=7ee37d89 ebx=7eeb8880 ecx=00000000
edx=100f18d8 esi=100f18d8 edi=00334ad0
trace:seh:raise_exception  ebp=00334a90 esp=00334a2c cs=0073 ds=007b
es=007b fs=0033 gs=003b flags=00200216

Anyone have any idea on what the exception is?

I've come as far so far as that it seems to be some MS Specific C++
exception. I've still got to find out what function this exception is
originating in. Going to try and figure that one out next.
