it's dieing in the ntfs fs code (thank you microsoft for yet another 
proprietary mess). if it is happening after you restart from windows, perhaps 
windows is putting the ntfs partition into a state that the linux driver 
doesn't cope with very well, e.g. it crashes. if that is the case, i doubt 
there is much you can do about it except report the bug to your distro and 
hope it gets fixed in a later rev of the ntfs driver.
