wedit-BUG: processor exception 10h with AMD-K6/2 processor

wedit crashes with a exception

16 (10h): Coprocessor Error Fault
This interrupt occurs when an unmasked floating-point exception has
signaled a previous instruction. (Because the 80386 does not have
access to the Floating Point unit, it checks the ERROR\ pin to test
for this condition.) This is also triggered by a WAIT instruction if
the Emulate Math Coprocessor bit at CR0 is set.

when starting to debug a program (pressing F5 from the IDE).

This machine is running with Win98-SE, processor is AMD-K6/2 (350MHz)

This exception does not occur with
Pentium processors running with Win98-SE, XP, 2000, ....


maybe wedit is compiled with pentium-instructions,
not supported on the old AMD-K6 series??

does anyone has the same behavior and a solution ???
