Never seen a 264 series machine to crash on that one... it's been a pretty widely known trick amongst democoders. Back then, that trick was frequently used for speeding up packers (ie. cruel crunch that usually ran for several hours before either crashing or producing a packed file). Some demos utilized that to squeeze out more cycles of the CPU (music demos were typical examples, where you could achieve higher sampling rate). Few years ago, a couple of people (independently of each other) finally came up with routines providing 400, or 416 pixels of horizontal resolution (although with great drawbacks) by using this trick.
