I found that the following javascript causes two Access Violations. Both appear
to be NULL pointers:

<BODY onload="go()"><SCRIPT>
    function go() {

One of the two AVs happens most often, I think which one happens is based on
timing. Please note that at least one of the NULL pointers happens in code that
appears to want to call a method in a vtable. Should the NULL value be attacker
controlable, this is extremely exploitable. I am assuming it is always NULL and
not exploitable.
