It really shouldn't do that. The 2.0.1 release was for a single overflow (that 
would never happen accidently - only through a deliberate attack), so I 
wouldn't expect that to help. However, if it's crashing, we'd really like to 
know about that - with enough details to reproduce (and hopefully fix).
