My Windows 7 (where the problem exists) is fully patched. All latest
patches are installed. The problem seems to be triggered by more
factors since some people don't have this particular problem. Also I'm
not entirely sure, but I think that the thread spends some time in
KiFastSystemCallRet, then the syscall returns, but it is entered
again. Using another Sysinternals tool, it seems like ld.exe is
writing again and again at the same offset in mplayer.exe. Right now I
don't have more time to investigate, but I'm filling a bug report to
Microsoft and will help them find the problem.
