Sorry.  I got snippy for no reason.  I have a lot of UNIX-infested 
colleagues who will go out of their way to make life difficult for Windows 
developers and your message coincided with another bout of "let's make life 
hell on Windows developers" in the company.

I appreciate your help and the effort you've put in so far.  (And would you 
be interested in the source changes I've made so far which allow Lua to be 
done as a dynamic link library under Win32?)
