Dot Mac on Vista

I know what you're going to tell me. "Don't run Apple software on Windows Vista." But I did. Save your typing.

It says:
dotmacsyncclient has stopped working
A problem caused the program to stop working correctly.
Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.

So far, no notification.

The only help I can see on the web is someone saying that they turned off DEP (Data Execution Prevention) and things worked great. DEP is a security feature of Windows Vista that prevents an application from running code from a data segment of memory. If you simply must run Windows, you really don't want to turn off DEP.  Really. If the Dot Mac sync client really is doing something illegal, and if Vista is stopping it, then it's an Apple bug.

The good news is that I can access all my Mac content from my Linux desktop and laptop via Firefox.  Oh, and from my Mac also, I suppose.

Anyone else have any bright ideas?
