I can confirm that I am running Windows 7 with SP1 and IE9. I can
confirm that I have seen no problems with AOO stability in normal use.
I can confirm that I've tried to trigger this problem, but that is
hard given that we don't have a recipe to reproduce the problem.

I have not done any formal testing of AOO, only general use in a
reasonably demanding environment.
