"Tom Davies":

The Wubi is installed inside Windows and depends on MS Windows
co-operating with the Ubuntu.  Various crucial systems such as the
boot-loader and the file-system are basically MS systems instead of
the proper Gnu&Linux ones.

That has no relation to the system stability. 

Uh, sure it does. They are different systems, therefore they have
different stability issues. Any two parts that are *different* will have
the potential for different problems.

In this case there is the additional factor that these subsystems
are integral to the whole, and many other parts of the system further
down the line are made with the assumption that these underlying
subsystems function a certain way. In well written systems, subsystems
make as few assumptions about other parts of the system as possible,
but it does still happen more often that one would hope for. And when
they are as different as linux and windows are, sometimes those
assumptions become invalidated, which can cause further instability.
