Game crash on gate jump - windows error

I would just like to piont out that the number of posts about this bug does not reflect the scale of the problem.
My main has been flying around in large (100+) fleets since the patch and the number of people crashing on Titan bridges/cyno's is pretty terrible. In the region of 8 to 10% of a fleet will drop on every bridge.

This combined with the "bridge bug" where you log in as a neutral to your fleet members when a bridge is up and have to wait a full 2 minutes, logged off, before you can make the jump, is making fleet events painful for us and a complete nightmare for the FC's.

Im supposed to be in gang right now, but I crashed so many times on the 12 jumps home I missed it.

Just crashed jumping into MG0-RD from I6M-9U. One other person in fleet crashed at the same time.

Crashed again with all graphics set to low after more than 100 jumps.

Edit : And after logging in crashed on the first jump again :)

Walk into the club like "What up? I got a big cockpit!"

EN- to T-K constellation gate. I'm frankly shocked I haven't lost a ship to this yet.

Crashed on the Uttindar gate to Bei. Happens with both autopilot on and off if that makes a difference.

I found that if I minimzed my game (i play windowed mode) when going through the Taisy -> M-OEE8 gate I do not crash. If I do not minimze the game I crash no matter what.

Crashed 4 times today during short Jita market trips, every time on the Iyen-Oursta <-> Perimeter gate (which is a regional gate, type Gallente)

Thank you all for your reports and your patience! It seems like we have found the reason for these crashes and an potential fix was made today and is now waiting for testing and deployment to TQ (which seems to require a regular client patch).

Keep patching TQ. Every time you fix a bug the game becomes a little better~

Seeing as I've crashed 8 times in the last hour on system changes between this character and an alt, I think I can speak for the rest of the community in asking if you could test faster. There may be cake involved at the end.

This ^^

Also, it would be very good if facts about these problems were communicated with the player base. This would help curb frustration on the part of players and CCP Customer Service employees since the number of petitions being submitted is still probably high.

We are 5 hours past the post by CCP Habakuk and I see nothing when starting the client in small announcment window above the log in, nothing in the news on the right at character select and the main EVE webpage doesn't mention it.

Lucky for me (and CCP) an ISD IonCharge in the F12 help channel got this information and link to me after I asked a couple times about the problem and possible solutions. Otherwise I'd be in Reykjavík doing an 'Occupy CCP' in their parking lot right now.

Although anxious for a fix, I support thorough testing of patches.

[snark](after all lack thereof is how we got here in the first place) [/snark]

This is annoying and kills people, but pushing out an untested fix could be apocrypha 1.0 all over again.
