Wow! Many thanks. I thought that information would  be  use-
less,  but  indeed,  the  crash  is  due to a floating-point
exception. I have Visual Studio at work and  it  intercepted
the  error  and  said it was a floating point exception. And
after it has been masked as you  suggested  my  Pascal  code

Do  I understand correctly, that at load my library was dis-
abling the exception mask for the whole program?

Is masking such exceptions a common practice in C?  Will  it
be politically correct to ask the developer to fix the prob-

Thank you again, Jonas
