Crash when first evaluation is ReadList[]


The kernel crashes when I do this:

1. Quit the kernel
2. Evaluate the following line, so that the kernel will start up:

data = ReadList[
    "test.txt",
    {Word, Real, Real, Number, Number, Number, Number}
   ];

test.txt contains 300,000 lines like this:

WORD 123.4 567.8 90 90 -1 -1

If the kernel is already running when this is evaluated, it will not 
always crash (but sometimes it will).

This is on WinXP with Mathematica 7.0.1.
