Exceed crashing
I'm running gambit on windows, which of course requires hummingbird Exceed. I'm been having an issue where when I fire up gambit, hummingbird immediately crashes. If I repair the installation, then everything works fine again. I haven't done extensive testing, but I believe that the problem mainly happens after windows installs an automatic update.

Has anyone run into this before? Is there an easier solution then repairing the install every time?

That's how I'm starting gambit. When I start gambit from the shortcut, it automatically starts hummingbird (which proceeds to immediately crash). I've tried starting hummingbird alone as well and get the same result, so it may be more of a hummingbird-windows issue. I am also running XP.
