avast! (Free 6.0.1203) has BSODed my PC (32-bit WinXP Pro 2002 SP3) twice today, the second time reproducing the first one exactly:
* avast! service: Stopped (I just haven't checked this with the service running)
* avast! GUI: running in the tray (and displaying a red-white X-sign)
* Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Express Edition (Version 9.0.30729.1 SP): loading a minidump project (of an unrelated executable)
* Windows symbols: downloaded locally (just in case it matters)

At some point, BSOD happens; its minidumps attached.

Thanks for detailed description - I was able to simulate this bsod and fixed it (it's maybe only XP thing..)

Anyway, seems the correction will only be available in next program version. Am I right?

@ pk
I don't see this on the patches page pk, will this be added ?
Or more important is there a scheduled/estimated release date for the next 6.0.x program update ?

Kenny,
I've made some changes in my configuration, but hadn't gotten around to updating the specs here.   I am no longer running WD on this particular system.   
I'll update my specs momentarily...

I am seeing bsod's caused by avast over a number of my xp pro installations, all are running avast internet security.  Typically, it happens a few times a month, but sometimes a few times a week, and usually seems to happen when the user is browsing the internet with internet explorer, nothing fancy.  Shutting down the machine and restarting it fixes it for a while.  I can't make it happen intentionally. Memory tests come up clean.  I scan the minidump file with microsoft crash file analyzer and it is "probably caused by" asw file.
I am using the most up to date version of avast.  If I find out anything more I will post it, just letting you know what I am seeing.  If you want I can submit minidump files.

-Jerry

Please try the latest beta: http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=83583.0
Hopefully it will help, there are some relevant changes in this build.

Thanks

Ok thanks will do.  I have installed it one on one problematic workstation and it's running fine so far (only 1 day).  Today I will be installing it on other workstations as well, they are scattered over multiple locations so I will updated as I get to them.

I'll follow up in the beta thread after this,

Thanks for your help!
