No, not at all.

At least two things would be interesting for me:

(1) If you still use Linux, does it crash on Linux and GnuCash 2.2.x as
(2) May you try to provide us with a backtrace, as described on
http://wiki.gnucash.org/wiki/Windows#Debugging_with_gdb ?  You may also
want to make gnucash-bin.exe a console application
(http://wiki.gnucash.org/wiki/Windows#Console_output_and_exetype) and
start it from gnucash.bat with --debug append (after %*).
