Hi Ian

Yes, I found the --debug option was greeted with an error message box
on Win32. The SN_DEBUG environment variable works ok though, and the 
log files are generated as %TMP%/zznavigNN.log.

I've written a small extension DLL that adds "dbgwin print" and
"dbgwin break" Tcl commands. These send output strings to, or 
cause a break into a Win32 debugger. A bit primitive, bit it will
