[racket] frequent crashes on Windows 7 64-bit

I've been trying to upload data into an SQLite database using Racket from Windows 7 64-bit and both Racket.exe and DrRacket.exe keep crashing before the upload finishes.  I've had crashes on long-running programs in DrRacket on Windows 7 before, so I don't want to say for sure that it's the fault of the db library.  However, I do know is that the crashes have been happening repeatedly with this project and given the amount of data I need to upload, it is impractical to keep restarting Racket in the hopes that it will eventually finish.  Racket is crashing with both 5.3.6 as well as the latest nightly build you have installers for:  I have attached a sample script which creates an in-memory sqlite database and populates it with a trillion sines which crashes on me after a while, just like my actual script.  My Racket VM (at least in DrRacket) defaults to 2048 Mb.

Below is what error information Windows gives upon the crash:

Let me know if there is any other information I can provide.
