When you are getting these errors, are you using the NTK debugger and toolkit (it’s been a long time, I may have the names wrong).
When these thinks “clank” you get one message on the screen, but a whole lot more information out the debugger port. Stack dumps, variables, reasonable messages.
(you probably know all of this, I’ll go back to lurking now)
