Could you show backtrace log?

Regarding JPEG2000: I've confirmed that problem exist (on Windows platform),
but I can't found where it is yet.

Note, that main purpose of the immediate access to sources in development
is a possibility to get immediate feedback.
You may choose any policy with this sources. For example, you can freeze

read CVS messages carefully next time and edit nmake.opt manually if so.
