Spybot S&D on Windows 98

Haven't seen this posted here, but it may be of use.
The most recent versions of Spybot Search & Destroy produce errors in Windows 98 when you start the application.
The error is usually:
"Exception EAccessViolation in module SPYBOTSD.EXE at 002E 6098. Access
violation at address 006E 609B in module 'SPYBOTSD.EXE'. Read of address
FFFFFFFF."
The manufacturers say that this is caused by a problem with memory management in 98.
There is a workaround, however.
Before starting Spybot, start Dr Watson first. This prevents the error.
