I have ISE 10.1.02
Often, when I close PACE and immediately RUN Synthesize-XST I get the following crash:
"Runtime Error! Program: _pn.exe. The application has requested the Runtime to termiate it in an unusual way"
To continue I need to restart ISE and try again.
Anyone knows what is happening here ?

Can you let us know what is the OS that you are using ? This is the OS Support link <http://www.xilinx.com/ise/ossupport/index.htm>
The memory you have on your machine. This is the memory recommendations <http://www.xilinx.com/ise/products/memory.htm>

Mine too. Often. It happens both at work and at home. Different hardware, peripherals, installed software...
Both are running Win XP SP2, 1Gb / 2Gb ram, both ISE 10.1.02 (but it was happening before last service pack).
I was not able to track down a cause.
Besides, even the ISE editor crashes randomly once in 30 minutes, when pressing control keys combinations.
(this happens since 9.x; opened a case, but nothing happened. Happens on both machines! Maybe italian keyboard ?)

I haven't seen this crash, maybe because I don't use PACE. However I have noticed that the ISE GUI will crash if you change or re-load the impact project during one session. That is I can run through synthesis, implementaion, etc. and program the device. But if I then close impact from within ISE and then re-open that or another impact project ISE crashes. I don't see this problem if I open impact directly from the start menu.
If I'm not mistaken _pn.exe is something that runs in the background and ties the various programs together (sometimes during a crash you see that "Pipe Notifier" is not responding).
I have also noticed that ISE 10.1 does not like to have Carbonite running. Perhaps other programs that insert themselves into the file system driver chain also cause crashing.

First, I would suggest starting a new thread, since you're responding to a 3-year-old thread that
only the original posters will see.
In the new thread you should provide more information, including the OS and version of OS
you are using (from the image I'd guess Windows 7).
If you are using Windows 7, you may want to look at the compatibility of the various ISE versions.
I believe that official support for Windows 7 did not come before ISE 13.x
