My Vista machine was built and Lilypond installed while daylight saving was 
active (still is active here in the Australian summer). Apart from an update to 
the font cache that seems to have happened a few days ago as a result of 
including an em dash in a score, my font cache doesn't update every time I run 

stat is a C library function to obtain information about a file. I would assume 
fcstat is much the same.
