This may be totally wrong, but...

I made a mod to the Degugger to preserve the string stack. If your function
were returning a string and the debugger overwrote the string stack entry
that was the function result, you could have gotten back a bad string which
you acted upon and that may have caused a crash.

As to the FN stack, we've never had even one bug report on it. Something
may be wrong in code (your's or our runtime) that is screwing up memory tho.
