I was on 11-5 with my 4850 and everything was running fine. I upgraded to 11-6 and the following weird things happened:

1. I used to run work size of 64. Now, any work size < 256 crashes the miner in MSVCR90.dll. Any gpu miner. This can be phoenix, diablo, poclbm, whatever. CPU mining is not affected.

Code:
Faulting application name: phoenix.exe, version: 0.0.0.0, time stamp: 0x4918019b
Faulting module name: MSVCR90.dll, version: 9.0.30729.6161, time stamp: 0x4dace5b9
Exception code: 0x40000015

2. However, the miner works ONCE without vectors and once with vectors regardless of work size. Even after rebooting it doesn't work. I ran it with poclbm at work size 64 with and without vectors and now I can't run them with work size < 256. Here's a phoenix example:

Above, I run with worksize 1024 (too large?) and get ~66MH/s. Then I run 64 with vectors. With vectors because I already ran it without vectors and that doesn't work anymore. I then abort it and run it again: crash. Work size of 256 still works.

3. There used to be a performance hit at work size 256 (and 128) but I'm not seeing that now. Don't have current numbers for work size 64 to show it though.

Tried a normal reinstall but not a full reinstall with clean uninstall. But, worksize 256 >= than worksize 64 on 11-5 catalyst so it's not a big deal yet.

Was having the same problem with a 4870 but not with a 5970 on the same machine, removed worksize from all the miners (including the 5970) and actually gained 10MH/s.
