Hey Jim,

your suggestion does indeed appear reasonable, and I had actually
prepared such an addition to the download page when we learned
that this bug is not windows 2000 specific at all. It can hit people who
use all versions of Windows, but by far doesn't hit most of them.

So it is in fact false that this is specifically a bug with support for
win2k, and rather it's a general bug that we're hoping to solve. We've
had some help from someone experiencing the issue, but details are still
a bit in the dark. Hopefully we'll have a patch out soon.
