It sounds like the problem is memory management. By adding Dr. Watson
you're adding something that stays in memory, and by adding something that
wasn't there before, you're moving stuff around in memory. You might want
to play around with your memory manager. We never had anything but misery
with the EMM that came with Windoze 3.11, and finally settled on the
commercial QEMM product. Once I let QEMM re-order my in-memory stuff (my
TCP stack, etc.) my GPFs went away.
