We have looked into this, and we did not encounter any exception like this and we would not have expected it either. This was the very final download:
HD Request # 5941 | Daily download COMPLETE for A. Completion time: 1s. Unique request ID: 5940 | 2017-11-19 07:06:22

We have looked more closely at the error message which we should have done in the beginning. This is what we see:

Caught an unhandled exception in c_Chart::WindowProc. Message: 15, wParam: 0, lParam: 0 | 2017-11-11 00:12:02 *


Message 15 is:
WM_PAINT

So this problem is when the chart is drawn. We do not know why it occurs and there are no known reasons for any problem like this. The drawing code is very stable. If you are running any screensaver software, disable it. We do suspect this could be some kind of system-level issue.
