I don't do Windows, but what I was tokd the last time this came up is
that Windows does not pretend to offer Unix semantics here, and any
program that expects them is broken.
Whether or not that is true of XEmacs's C code, I don't know, but
there's defintely a strong bias toward Unix in the application layers.
