I, for one, appreciate your persistence very much.  However, given
that the resources for working on the Windows port are very scarce at
the moment, how about if you try to debug this yourself?  I'm sure
people here, including myself, will be more than willing to offer help
if you report some findings and ask for further guidance, even though
those same people cannot themselves work on the problem.

Very true, IMHO.
