The bottom line is that this problem is happening down inside the video driver, and although it *could* be caused by something Rhino is doing, the drivers should still not crash. Because of this, the possibility of fixing this in Rhino extremely difficult, or possibly impossible at this point.
This situation concerns us since work can be lost due to the crash and forced shutdown of Rhino(s). Some crashes seem to occur without Rhino running … just running web browsers and viewing video crashed the system at other times. But the combination of both Rhino and browser(s) seemed to speed up the frequency of crashes.
