This is weird:
I have a 1.5 osgeo4w installation and it works just fine with ecws. You
need to copy the dlls from the *old* sdk, but then it works just fine
with no crashes at all.

If you copy the dlls from the sdk available now in the erdas site, ecw
will not open. The gdal16-ecw plugin available in the osgeo4w installer
was based in the old sdk. But still no crash in any case.
