    It fails on both my Win2k machines, I don't a have a unix/linux to test.

Please dont call Windows "win", and please don't call the whole system "Linux".

In hacker terminology, calling something a "win" is a form of praise.

As for the Linux system, it is more GNU than Linux, so please call it
"GNU/Linux".  If you call it "Linux", you're giving someone else the
