Meanwhile I think I could exclude PSTricks from the list of possible
causers. I get the crash even with the simplest document like

% --- s-params.tex ---------
Hallo Welt.
% --------------------------

after the sequence

latex s-params
dvips s-params
ps2pdf s-params.ps
pdfcrop s-params.pdf

I get the reported crash of gswin32c during the pdfcrop run. But, as I
wrote, only from within one particular directory. In any other directory
it works fine (which is something I really don't catch).
