Robert, thanks for the report.  I'm not able to reproduce this problem on my
WinXP host:

$ unison -version
unison version 2.27.48

A few questions:  Did you have the previous version of unison2.27 installed, and
if so did it work properly?  If you didn't try it, please try installing it over
the current release:

wget http://home.comcast.net/~aschulman2/unison2.27/unison2.27-2.27.29-1.tar.bz2
tar -C/ -jxf unison2.27-2.27.29-1.tar.bz2

Then run 'unison-2.27 -version' again and please let me know if it works.
