Soft Interrupt on PIC32

I want to use a soft interrupt on PIC32 with FreeRTOS. But when I adds it the soft interrupt handler, the kernal crash, even without the interrupt be enable.
I know that the soft interrupt handler is right, because I  tested it on a short program without FreeRTOS and worked perfectly.
This is the handler.

void    __ISR(_CORE_SOFTWARE_0_VECTOR, ipl2) Soft0Interrupcion(void)

    IFS0bits.CS0IF = 0;
//    INTClearFlag(INT_CS0);


I know that the program go into the soft interrupt handler only once (there is a toggle led inside).
When I says that the kernal crash I mean that it never go into a context switch any more, although the tick interrupt is working.

Any idea?.  Thank you.

See page

"The kernel makes use of the MIPS software interrupt 0. This interrupt is therefore not available for use by the application."

You are right.

Thank you very much.
