Are you sure it crashes or simply terminates?  On windows tlmgr has to
quit, because it can't be updated while running.  What happens is that
tlmgr makes a special batch update script on windows
(C:\texlive\2010\temp\updater-w32.bat), which is run after it quits.
Can you send us this script (if it's there)?  (Change extension from
.bat to .txt or your email client may filter it).

Norbert, the info "Critical updates have been installed" in the dialog
is not quite true for windows ;)
