All these strings are dynamically allocated, either in the (local)
cString class or malloc'ed with exact size, so I dont think that this is
a simple buffer overflow.

(1) the delete is commented out for some reason, so this cant be causing it.
(2) this is the last message of the init part, so the bug may be
somewhere in the main loop.

Anything helpful would be very welcome. Add some more debug messages or
try to locate the crash with a debugger.
