Do you have the test case you used for the pure win32 mode?  If you do
then maybe I can try and push to get this fixed for the next service
pack release for both XP and Vista as well as Server 2008.  This will
especially be the case if it can be easily reproduced.  A source and
binary version will be useful for this.  I am in the tech beta group for
Vista SP1, XP SP3, and Server 2008 so I can at least remind them of this
bug and show them a test case.  No guarantees that it will be fixed.
