Well, in practice the policy is that we support whatever people are
willing to provide support for.  And Eli is willing to support Windows
versions that are even older than XP.

This sounds a lot like 23935 (i.e., it's likely to be font-specific),
though Drew reported (on Windows 7) that 24.5, 23.4.1, and 22.3 did not
crash when displaying HELLO.  I think we may as well close both as
unreproducible, as there doesn't seem to be any possiblity of making
progress on them.
