Please check mail archive regarding Windows98 and Windows95, then send
a complain to M$.  The problem is the 16-bit crap burried in the so-called
gdi32.dll on Win98 and Win95.  I can do nothing about it, except to tell
you that Microsoft LIES when it tells you that Windows98 and Windows95 are
operating systems.  It has a nice 32-bit desktop but that is it, all it got,
behind the scene it runs 16-bit  and 8-bit crap from Win 3.1.x and DOS
 mixed with some 32-bit stuff, that is why you often see the error only
Win9x, "Kernel32 rashed".
