	I expect my test user has sufficient privileges.  It is
	in groups None, Administrators, Power Users, and User.

	I guess I'll try to learn more about the internals of w2k,
	more then I ever wanted to know, starting with ReportEventA().

	Unfortunately my configure of cygwin-1.5.5-1 died looking
	for an errant install-sh. In case my w2k environment is
	insufficient to build cygwin from scratch, could you add a
	check of return code from ReportEventA()? That might shed
	light on the problem.

		Thank you,
