When using the Document Handler API (CDocumentHandler) for moving or copying a file, the application may crash with KERN-EXEC 3 panic. This is usually due to stack overflow when using the default stack size (8 kB).


Increase the stack size to 20 kB. In the .mmp project definition file, add the following statement:

epocstacksize 0x5000
