Ah, I think I might know what this is, and why it might seem that we
"dropped" w95 support.

We use the CryptGenRandom function to get entropy from windows.  This
function was introduced in win98; to get it in win95, I think you need
OSR2 or later, or a later version of IE.  I'm not sure if this is
what's up in your case, but it might help.
