The faulty code fragment:

The address point to uncommitted memory. The function call right above the red line goes into cgraphinst.dll!10d03ab1 and successfully completes. Looking at the instructions around it, it seems that the red line is a botched jump that is supposed to go to kernel32.dll (all jumps below do), which either doesn't match my kernel32.dll exports or the call before it didn't set it up correctly.
As you can see from the initial stack trace, this code is the startup code for XERNEL32.DLL. Before dying this way, these DLLs are successfully initialized, in this order:
Intel VTune Performance Analyzer 9.0 Build:623
32-bit Windows 2003 Server Standard, SP2 running inside VMWare.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
