I think we have pinpointed the cause. The .elc files were being
loaded as text files (on Windows this means dropping \r and
truncating on Ctrl-Z) due to a change in the defaults for GCC on
Windows sometime between 2.95 and 3.2. We already have a fix in CVS,
but it was not in 21.3.

We can either build the 21.3 release with an older version of GCC, or
patch the sources and release a 21.3a for Windows as suggested by Eli.
