Well, that's possibly a very good guess. Now if only someone could look at 
[knob]'s code, to find out what might be wrong with it...

Anything that uses sys_vgui() can be doing things wrong sometimes. For 
example, current sys_vgui() conventions can cause conflicting pointers in 
Win64, but there is no evidence that this ever happened. Afaict, this is a 
separate bug from the one you experienced, and from the windows bug that 
I've seen a long time ago. The Win64 bug is not easy to fix and it doesn't 
look like anyone will want to fix it anytime soon.
