swt's ole implementation does not have anything in place that would do this
automatically. Looking at swt's implementation, the only place that
OleCreate* is called with the program id is in the OleClientSite
constructors. I'm not an OLE expert, but based on this I think the best
that could be hoped for would be for you to detect the crash somehow and
then dispose the OleClientSite and create a new one.
I'm not sure how you would detect the crash though. Maybe ping it
periodically somehow (would doing this to a crashed app result in an swt
crash)? Hopefully someone else has another idea here. swt's ole owner is
away until the new year, so if there aren't any better suggestions in the
meantime then I'll see if he has a suggestion for helping your case.
