I think I mentioned it before. Currently I assume that it is a problem with
libcurl. Unless you specify that you want to compile against the correct
SDK version libcurl uses a vista function unconditionally. So this has been
an old problem (and would have crashed on XP if the corresponding ucp
component got loaded) but is now causing a crash already during start as
our minidump uploaded has a libcurl dependency.

There is a patch to fix it by telling the libcurl build to compile against
the old version but as I have no XP I can not test if it really helps.
