I remember that in one or two cases in the past some common commands (like
other-buffer) would sometimes yield different results on ntemacs.
This is from my memory -- don't remember which commands had this problem.

I don't know where to start myself, because the bug report provides no
information at all. I was just guessing that he might have been comparing a
buffer with itself without noticing it. One way of doing it is to accept
defaults without reading the buffer names. (One might do this if you've
been often relying on the defaults offered by ediff and they've always been
right in the past).
