Lennart, we don't seem to be communicating.
"No", what?  Did I say anything about guarantees?

I said it works FOR ME (Windows XP SP3), and I suspect for at least some others
also. (Have you tried it (with emacs -Q)? Does it work for you? You might be
surprised that it does.)

What is THIS bug report about? There is a minor regression starting with Emacs

Please don't turn this into a discussion/rant about the Windows/Emacs patching
you "have suggested before". All I'm asking for is that this particular bug be
fixed - to make Emacs do again what it did in Emacs 21. Nothing more.

Let's not let the perfect become the enemy of the good. If you want to file
another bug about guarantees, low-level patches, and other things, feel free. I
have no objection to perfection ;-). But while waiting, let's see if this can be
fixed to at least let Emacs do what it did before.
