Hi Frank,

I recently called GDALClose() on a virtual dataset (created from 
GDALAutoCreateWarpedVRT()), and it was causing writing violation errors 
and privileged instruction errors on the line following the GDALClose() 
call. Can you shed any light on this matter? Thanks.

Best Regards,
Adeel Raza.
