While using the mysql client I went to view the status using \s; This caused an Application Error in mysqld-nt.exe

Message read:
The instruction at "0X30303030" referenced memory at "0x30303030". The memory could not be read.

More information supplied by XPP"
szAppName : mysqld-nt.exe     szAppVer :     szModName : unknown     
szModVer :     offset : 30303030     

XPP System;
DELL 3000
3.0 GHz Celeron CPU
512 MB RAM
XPP SP2 patched to latest patch levels

W2K System;
Home made.
256 MB RAM
W2K patched to latest patch levels

How to repeat:
On XPP it happens pretty quickly, on W2K it takes running the command several times in a row before it will crash. To repeat:
1) install 5.0.3 on XPP or W2K
2) Ensure that mysqld-nt.exe is being used.
3) open mysql client
4) use the \s; command
5) repeat as needed to get the crash.
