Thanks for the report.

I'm not familiar with this guest OS, and the screenshot doesn't really say what error it has run into I'm not sure what "0x80000008 - Privilege violation error" exactly refers to. I assume you can build it from source, so are you able to make sense of the stacktrace?

There is register context available on the screenshot (most importantly EIP, ESP).

We can probably get AROS sources (?) or at least disassemble surrounding of 0x01407385 and understand the faulty algorithm.

AROS sources are on and accessible using a guest account, is an existing git mirror.
