<snipped message about windows crashing>

it is all due to not un-inmplemented devices in windows, still there since 
dos, trying to run c:\nul\nul will similarily crash windows ( I believe 
recent security patches from MS address the problem, though, the simple 
fact that they didn't know about it until somebody tested it says a bit to 
much... I have heard, not felt like testing it myself, that you will be 
able to crash a windows with just a link to a device, or crashing a windows 
based ftp server trying to reach devices, though, as I said, not tested 
those myself.
