I've investigated GIMP's https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=676708,
on Windows XP, and the cause is that 'GetClipBox', on XP, for desktop's hdc
returns NULLREGION and an empty rect. That produces an empty win32 surface
which then, used as a source, paints nothing (do_nothing returns true).
With the attached patch GIMP's color dialog color picker returns the color
under the pointer also on XP.
Three years later we keep receiving complaints from Windows users, because the patch seems to never have been applied.
Let's get over with it please :)
A patch has landed to trunk to fix bug 100793, which claims it addresses the root cause leading to this bug.
Could you please re-test against the current master trunk to see if the crash issue is still reproducible?

I don't recall crashes related to this isssue, it was just
GIMP's color picker returning black.
Besides, I no longer have access to the 32 bit Windows XP
I had time ago. Sorry
