Node crashes with Access Violation error on Windows #165

Node crashes with Access Violation error on Windows in case more than one Fiber has been created. The error code of the Node process is C0000005.
I believe that the reason is that V8 crashes during garbage collection of Fibers.
There is a question in stack overflow about this issue:

You can reproduce it by simply running the following code:

var Fiber = require("fibers");
var Future = require("fibers/future");

for (var i = 0; i < 2; i++) {
    Fiber(function () {

function timeout(delay) {
    return (function () {
        var future = new Future();

        setTimeout(function() {
        }, delay);


Let me know if this is still an issue. 2 Windows were fixed recently.
