It would be good to fix the bug on Windows 95/98/Me that causes the
rendering to screw up. It appears to be a GDI resource leak similar to the
one that was already found.

I've used Inno setup and have Borland, MSVC .NET and GNU C++ compilers on my
home machine and MSVC++ 6 at work so I should be able to make binary
releases for eack of these compilers.

Those names look fine.
