(I am resubmitting this in the hope that someone might have further
insight...sorry about overexposing this...really would like to know what to
do here) :)
>I have been testing what I think is the latest version of Mingw32. It

>(got it straight out of Brent Welch's book "Practical Programming in Tcl
