Thanks, fixed.  I can't commit to CVS yet b/c I'm testing some other things. 
But it will go in later.

Because I don't have a clue what I'm doing under windows :)

Seriously, it's a miracle that stuff works at all.  I wrote it ages ago when I 
still had access to a windows computer, and mainly in a day or two of blind 
trial and error.  Since I lost all access to windows, I can't even test this 
anymore.  But I'll gladly take in patches and enhancements :)
