Thanks. Could you please send mail when a fixed binary is available?
Thanks much for the help.

I think the executable available on wasn't compiled with
CVS_BADROOT properly undef'd re:
undefined correctly in windows-NT/options.h, so I'm guessing that
somehow src/options.h got used instead when the executable was
compiled.  I don't know if that goes for the older executables or just
Tim Buck's 1.11.2 contribution, but if anyone would like to resubmit a
new properly compiled executable to <address@hidden> and any
patches to the MSVC/C++ project files to <address@hidden>, I'll see
about getting both of those where they belong.
