I suddenly started getting reports from some of my LO 3.6 users that
Windows Explorer randomly crashed when they went to open an ODF file and
my own tests confirmed this to be true for all Windows versions from XP
through 7 both 32 & 64 bit.

I think I am experiencing something related to this bug: but before I
start escalating this report, or opening a new one, I would like to get
feedback on other users experience of this issue.

If you have LO 3.6.0 or 3.6.1 installed, open Windows Explorer and
browse for any ODF file, hover the cursor over the file and wait for the
tool/file tip to appear, this is when Windows Explorer might crash. I
say "might", because it does not occur on all ODF file types, Base
".odb" files seem to generate the crash more frequently than others. If
you can capture the crash report, it will clearly show that the culprit
is either:
C:\Program Files\LibreOffice 3.6\program\shlxthdl\shlxthdl.dll
C:\Program Files (x86)\LibreOffice 3.6\program\shlxthdl\shlxthdl_x64.dll

Apologies for cross posting, but I think this is a critical issue,
because we do not want LO to get the reputation of an application that
kills core OS services.
