My fix for "Exefile.exe encountered a serious....."

Around the time I noticed this "Agency business", I also noticed that every time I attempted to station doc the client freezes and I get this Exefile.exe error. Force quitting was the only way to end Eve when this occurs.

The crash would only happen if I had been undocked for a few minutes. If I undocked and docked immediately there was no issue.

1) First I set video to optimize for memory. Still crashes.
2) Next, I cleared all cache in settings in the game. Still crashes
3) Then I verified the integrity of the downloaded files and purged. Still crashes.
4) Removed the eve launcher and game files and reinstalled. Still crashes. ???

After this I have to assume the issue is with Eve Online and not my Mac or associated client files.

Today, on a hunch, I downgraded wine to wine-1.9.10-190-g5068ea9-ccp-master-67 from "latest"

Now I can station dock without crashing consistently.

Hope this helps others that may be encountering this issue. Looking through the eve forums and googling, it would seem Im the only one. Ill move back to the latest wine when I notice the next update.
