Could it be choking on this?

do you use native or runtime? if native, try runtime

maybe this is not a major issue

Both have the same problem. Crashes the whole system. So it is a major issue in my opinion.

I always get this error with everything, shouldn't be a problem. I use english as my language, but finnish as the time, date format and everything like that.
