Though you give us a lot of information, you really don't
tell us what it is doing when it locks.  Does it lock in
the environment?  As a Standalone?  Using the runtime?
All of the above?  Are you doing a lot of recursion?
(else why the extra stack space?)

Can you reproduce the error?  Does it lock up at the same
place all of the time?

If you can get it to lock up in the environment, and you
can reproduce the error upon command, then you shouldn't
have too much trouble tracking it down -- just press Ctrl-
Break when you get close and single-step the code with F8
and F10 until you come to the offending code.
