fwiw, I thought that I might have broken XWin on NT4 recently.

On checking, I discovered that XWin has been broken on NT4 without anyone
complaining since at least 1.6.3-1, released 2009-09-06. The
VerSetConditionMask() API we use to check we aren't running on Windows 2000
isn't available on NT4. :-). Also it looks like multiwindow mode has probably
not worked correctly for longer.
