Did you try the methods of debugging suggested by section 12.2 of the
DJGPP FAQ list?  If not, please try those which are applicable to this
case.

Your crash is not because of NULL pointer dereference (Windows cannot
detect those); it's a GPF.  Section 12.2 of the FAQ explains what
problems can cause a GPF.  Just from looking at the registers' dump,
the value of EDX (7F7F7F7Fh) seems highly suspicious, but only poking
around the code in a debugger can tell whether it is at all relevant
to the problem.

The crash you posted is on Windows, I think.  If the crashes on DOS
look even slightly different, especially if they point to a different
location, post them as well.
