For me, the file vline.el downloaded from the above address loads
successfully even without setting LANG to "C".  Just a simple "C-x
C-f" works and doesn't throw any errors.

Either the version of vline.el Drew used is different, or something
else is at work here.  Drew, are you using the patched EmacsW32 binary
produced by Lennart?  If so, perhaps it's something that is being
triggered by the patches.  Or maybe something in Drew's .emacs
