I haven't tested PIL 1.1.6 on Vista myself, and don't have convenient 
access to a Vista machine with a development environment (exactly zero 
percent of my clients that use Windows have migrated to Vista, or are 
planning to do that in the foreseeable future).

patches are welcome (preferably patches that work on both XP and Vista)
