[v2.12.3] Hard crash while using mixers

Greetings! I am currently experiencing a strange issue where the program will hard crash if I have more than one of the channel mixers open while music is playing

This issue seems to affect 2.12.3, and the version I had before it (I can't remember what that was)

To replicate: I am using software called OpenMPT with instruments mapped to three of the virtual devices. Sending events through each of them. As music is playing, opening one mixer will be fine. However, when I open a second one, it will either crash immediately or shortly after. It seems to be fine when I open them before starting the music, but if I try to open another one after that (while playing), it will crash almost immediately.

Unfortunately, I don't see any error messages upon crashing. Digging through event viewer, I found an exception code: 0xc0000409

I'm actually on vacation, will try to reproduce the bug on my side in a few days.

Meanwhile, it should be great to know when the bug started (I suppose it started with 2.12.x series)...

Could you downgrade to the latest 2.11.x version and check if the bug is still there?

Hey, thanks for the quick response! I've Completed the downgrade to 2.11.2, and it looks like the issue does not occur here.

Cheers!

Attached here you'll find version 2.12.4-beta1 with the fix to the reported bug.

Please check it out and confirm if it works correctly, so I'll release version 2.12.4 (or 2.13.0...).
