Dear Lilypond developers:
I have recently downloaded LilyPond 2.6.0 for Windows from your website,
and have found two oddities (may not be bugs??) in its operation, that you
may be interested in, as the behavior is not explained or noted in the
html file containing the user's manual.  (This document is only titled
Lilypond the Music Typesetter (for version 2.6.1).
I am running Windows 98 Second Edition (no, that's not the first oddity),
This problem has been discussed here recently.  You might want to browse
the recent archives.  Several of us are looking at it.  A batch file I
will attach may help a little temporarily.

Some mail systems has blocked attaching a bat file so it is at the bottom here. The last part is one line.

It will create a PDF from your PS file.
