Excellent news.

I don't have a copy of Windows 3 (3.0, 3.1, WfW, or 3.11), so I am not able
to test this.

Windows 98 Wordpad has no issues with the insert key for qemu-gtk.

Again, I can't test Windows 3.

However, under Windows 98 double clicking does seem to have problems. It does
work for me ocassionally (if I keep clicking hard and fast enough - more
"stream clicking" than double clicking), but there are clear issues.

The way GTK/GDK deals with single, double, and triple clicks is weird. I'll
take a much closer look at it.

Never a problem. Like I said, it was a dumb oversight on my part.

I don't think that I am exceptional in this. Most developers are happy to
fix bugs that users report (time permitting of course). It simply looks like
qemu is lacking dedicated Windows developers. At least, thats how it looks to

I know of only 1 real developer of qemu under windows. But he works on a
separate tree (C code cleaned up to compile under MSVC, different IDE and VGA/
Cirrus code, etc).

Infinite complexity begets infinite beauty.
Infinite precision begets infinite perfection.
