mysql crash while creating dump

hi all,
i'm searching the whole forum + bugdatabase since yesterday but didn't find something similar to my problem:

i very often create a dump via
mysqldump -u<user> -p <databasename> > d:\wwwroot\Default\_mysql\dump_20060707.sql
and it always works fine.

we are running a master windows server 2003 sp1 with iis, php 5.1.1 and mysql server 4.1.15 with mysql-replication and a slave-server with the same context at our customer.

twice i wanted to create a dump at the master-server, the whole mysql-service crashed during dumping. the dump just got a size of about 200kb (normally 10mb).

i couldn't just stop the mysql-service afterwards but had to kill it via the task manager. afterwards i retried to create a dump and everything worked fine...
since the last crash yesterday i am trying to rebuild the error but all dumps work fine.
but the crash happend twice now, first time last week when i created a dump via phpmyadmin and yesterday when i created a dump via command-line.

there are no errors in mysql-log, phperror-log or webserver-log. because i couldn't rebuild the crash, i am sorry i can't give you any SHOW TABLE STATUS or else... and unfortunately i deleted the 200kb-dump..

we can't upgrade to a newer version of mysql because the software (a CMS) doesn't work with newer versions.

hopefully someone had a similar problem...
thanks alot
