No, I don't use the CVS version.

Sorry, I'm not following: are you saying that stock Emacs 21.1
compiled for Windows _always_ fails in this manner?  If so, how come
my copy works?

If it only fails sometimes, there should be some specific cause for
that.  Perhaps if Christoph knew what that cause might be, he could
work around it in the meantime, so as to be able to use NTEmacs until
the fixed version is released.
