    I am trying to move from XEmacs on HP-UX to GnuEmacs on Windows NT.

I'm glad you would like to switch from XEmacs to Emacs, but switching
to Windows is a tragedy.  HP-UX is a GNU-like system, so a switch to
GNU/Linux today would be almost painless for you, and would enable you
to be part of the Free World.  But if you make the incompatible change
to Windows today, moving to freedom in the future would require a
second incompatible change.  That is not a good idea at all.

(By the way, XEmacs is a modified version of a GNU program; to
contrast Emacs with XEmacs by describing the former as GNU is

Anyway, thanks for the bug report.  The people who work on Windows
support will look at it, I expect.
