If you can see in GDB where does this come from and show the
backtrace, that would be great.  Failing that, let's leave Windows 9X
testing alone for a while (you can always test the fallback code by
forcefully failing one of the run-time tests for the newer versions)
and test only on W2K.  We can return to the 9X problem later.

I presume you built on a newer version of Windows and only ran on
Windows 9X?  I don't think the build procedure supports 9X.

That's OK, W2K is good enough.  Thanks.
