Hello Eli,
thank you very much for your time and your efforts. I really appreciate all the 
work you are doing and consequently providing such a tool like Emacs. 
Emacs on Windows is not my preferred working environment, however, my business 
environment forces me to use Windows the most part of the day, so I am very 
happy that people like you make it possible to continue using my preferred 
editor at least.
I will test again in a little while from now and report my findings again - 
many thanks for your efforts until then,
take care

Dieter Jurzitza
