    XPHome SP2. Does anyone find after running the WMF patch at MS Update
    (KB912919), that the Windows Picture and Fax viewer now causes Windows
    Explorer to crash? The specifics are that if you open a folder with pictures
    which is set to display as thumbnails and then click to open a picture into
    the Picture and Fax Viewer then open to full screen (start slide show),
    pause and then advance through a few pictures with the mouse, right click to
    show the property sheet, close properties and then close the viewer and
    immediately open a new picture into a new instance of the viewer and then
    close it this action causes Explorer to crash. This happens every time I run
    this cycle, the key factor is opening the properties sheet, without that
    there is no crash. The event log entry for the crash is 'The shell stopped
    unexpectedly and Explorer.exe was restarted.' The source is Winlogon. One
    further anomaly was the patch was noted to be 196 KB but jumped to 409 KB
    during the download. Thanks.
