I submitted patches for the official source to Gerd 16 months ago and he
very quickly responded with a test version 1.1.3 in SVN for me - regrettably
it has taken *me* this long to get around to testing it. I don't know what
Gerd's workload is like at the moment, but with luck there may be a new
official version that correctly supports Windows soon!
