No. If your issue is indeed due to the Windows version of the mod_jk 
connector, then you are on the correct list.

I am far from the specialist on the Windows/jk side of things, but I am 
still puzzled however.
According to your explanation below, the application which crashes is 
something called "w3wp.exe".  This does not really sound like an 
application which lives under Java and Tomcat.
The jk redirector's function is to redirect (or rather "proxy") some 
HTTP requests from IIS to a back-end Tomcat, so that these requests are 
processed by a Tomcat-based application.  Conversely, the response from 
this Tomcat-based application is then returned through the jk 
redirector, back to IIS, and from there to the client.
What motivates my puzzlement is that, if w3wp.exe is really an 
application which lives under IIS and not Tomcat, then there does not 
seem to exist any reason why the jk redirector would have anything to do 
with it.

My knowledge being limited, there might well be something I am missing 
in all of this.
