Then could you please provide us with a command line that sometimes
crashes  and preferably the debug output from Wget when it crashes. Not the
debugger, but just the debug.

I would like to reduce it to some kind of a minimal test case. Maybe the
progress bar routines are crashing, or maybe it is something to do with how
we access the filesystem, or something entirely different.
However, since you say you can't reproduce it inside a debugger, I would
hazard a guess that the issue lies somewhere in using uninitialized memory.
The debugger will initialize the memory and hence prevent some class of
bugs from occurring. An audit of the WIndows-specific code might be in
order for this since I haven't heard of such an issue on *nix machines.
