If an app crashes, the app is broken. End of discussion :)
If the app uses a lib that crashes itself, it is also the apps developer 
rsponsibility to solve the problem with the libs' developer and not tell the 
user to do so.

Yes, how to manually start it is not even documented anywhere but probably 
source code :-((
What a valid value for "ModuleName"?
Would it be that for a GUI app to solve such things with a small dialog,
