Well, the problem was repro'd in a version of emacs built yesterday
at approx. 5pm EST, and neither of those two files has changed since
I did my checkout.  I appear to have both changes, as well.

Hmm, maybe I need to do 

  nmake recompile && nmake install 

in the lisp directory?  It surprises me that 

   nmake && nmake install

from the nt directory is insufficient after updating my local CVS
