I use Lua on various Windows CE/Mobile/Pocket PC devices for more like 3 years
now and I've never had any problems with Lua itself. It's OS issues always.

Try to change atpanic() to use MessageBox() instead of that fprintf(), or try
regular file instead of that stderr.

Maybe if you provide minimal test case with complete source code, somebody
might be able to help you more.

Compile Lua stand-alone interpreter(lua.c) for Windows CE and try to run your
log() test case there. If it's working as you've expected, then you can
cherry-pick Lua error reporting code in docall() function to your C++ application.
