    If it only occurred on kernel 2.4 it would be a thread, because 2.4 gives each thread its own PID. That it happens under 2.6 proves it is a fork.

    No, Microsoft gets LESS stable with each major release. It takes 2-3 service packs to get stable again.

    That does narrow things down.

    If it works with a monitor and svideo at the same time, then it doesn't like not having a monitor. If it doesn't, then it doesn't like svideo.
