I've just tried to print to A0 with QGIS 1.6 on win7 (64bit, but QGIS 
compiled on WoW 32 bit) and got the crash. For me, it looks like a 
memory problem, not like a regression.

Some more observations:

-QGIS on win7 compiled with msvc 64 bit: printing to A0 works
-Linux 64bit: printing to A0 works (I remember it worked on 32bit Linux 
too, probably because gcc is able to use more memory than msvc 32bit).
- No problem on Mac 64bit

Also, I don't recall larger changes in the print composer that could be 
related (but maybe in core components of QGIS and in the Qt libs?).

So the resolution is to use a 64bit compiled executable on Windows. 
Since at Sourcepole, we need to have a 64bit win version ready for our 
clients, we will also provide a public download for 1.8.
