From https://blog.torproject.org/comment/285724#comment-285724 the cpu of the machine where it is crashing:

    CPU-Z info (extract)<br />
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------<br />
    Windows Version     Microsoft Windows 10 (10.0) Professional 32-bit (Build 18362)<br />
    Specification       AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 3800+<br />
    Instructions sets   MMX (+), 3DNow! (+), SSE, SSE2, SSE3, x86-64<br />

I'm wondering if it could be due to the lack of support for SSE4.
