 For records, I am building Emacs with both GCC (MinGW) and VS 2003. I
use it on XP and have not faced any problems. Maybe, the OP can try to
pick a VS 2003 build and use it on Vista (sorry, I do not have access
to a vista machine to do it myself) and see if it still happens.

I had tried it earlier and given up on VS 2005
