Unfortunately I don't have any, esp. seeing how I don't use winxp I
can't really help.  I was hoping Jorgen (pyreadline lead) would pitch
in, but he's been a bit silent for a while, so perhaps he's busy or
traveling,  I just don't know.

I wonder if we have any win32 experts on board who might help with
this one: there seem to be recurring issues with win32/emacs, yet I'm
sure someone out there knows the magic combination to make the whole
thing work.  If you do, please put it up on the wiki!
