Windowblinds + Intel VTune = instant reboot

When I start Intel's VTune performance profiling application whilst WindowBlinds is running, the effect is an instant reboot (not even a blue screen; the system just reboots).

This happens with both WB4 and WB5 beta. I have confirmed WB is the cause by first unloading all other add-ons (e.g. objectdock and so forth) and running VTune while only WB was active (caused reboot). I then unloaded WindowBlinds and ran VTune (no reboot). While VTune was running I then loaded a WB theme; the result was a reboot.

I've been using VTune for perhaps about two years and have never seen this behaviour before; I only recently started using WB and as such this is the first time they have been used together.

I would appreciate hearing of a solution to this.

N.B. the vtune site has a demo available if someone from StarDock would care to test this themselves.

Note: I see now that the reboot doesn't happen if I select 'total exclusion' in WB config (that wasn't my impression earlier but now at least appears to be the case). So it appears I can get around the problem, but nevertheless I would recommend that stardock still investigate this since it's never nice to have your system reboot under you because of a software glitch.
