While it's not impossible, I doubt the problem is in the DECW$Config.exe
image.  I think it is more likely to be in a device driver image which
is exercised because of an I/O done by DECW$Config.exe.  It may be that
the bugcheck always happens when DECW$Config.exe is running because
DECW$Config.exe is the first thing to touch the I/O device in question.
