The real problem is that server.el conflicts with gnuserv.el, so I
think it is better to fix this for all users of gnuserv, not just
Windows users.

The symptom of this problem I have seen reported before is strange
behaviour when customize decides to load server.el. I think throwing
an error would still cause strange behaviour of customize, so we need
a better solution than that.
