I haven't had such problems. But here are some ruminations which may or may not have any relevance:
- I usually start a task that waits for the renditions (as opposed to waiting for the rendition then starting a task).
- What's the purpose of starting a task if you're just going to wait for it to finish afterward?
Here is when it happens, I started a big upload (300 images) and then minimised Lightroom.
Lightroom kept going fine until I went back into it, then it instantly gave me the error and locked up. This only happened when I went back into Lightroom, and when I did the user interface was all messed up with blank spaces and white and black boxes where the image would be. As I say it does not seem like anything in the plugin triggering it, but the act of Lightroom redrawing the display. This is with 3.0
Here is the full error from windbg
(20b4.1698): Access violation - code c0000005 (first chance)
First chance exceptions are reported before any exception handling.
This exception may be expected and handled.
*** ERROR: Symbol file could not be found. Defaulted to export symbols for C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3\ui.dll -

I start 4 tasks that each render 1 image size then I wait for them all to finnish before I upload the images. I tried to include the upload in the tasks, but it generated to many ftp connections because I could not use the same connection in 4 different task (it would kick a error if it tried to upload 2 images at a time)
I dunno Allen - something is off.
I've had multiple simultaneous ftp connections active before but I don't think they were ever to the same server.
Definitely ftp on a different task than the export/rendering task sounds good.
Sorry I haven't been more helpful.
