I have been using Racket for over a week now with no crashes on Windows 7  64-bit.  Thanks again, Matthew!

Assuming that you're using v5.3.3, can you check whether the crash happen the current candidate for the next release?:


There was a bug specific to 64-bit Windows that took us a long time to track down (in particular, I had trouble replicating reported crashes), but I think it's now fixed.
