I've found that Emacs and Win95 manage to lock up all on their own without
the aid of Python or Tk.  This seems to happen unless Emacs (20.5) is the
only thing running on the desktop when it is started and exited.  May well
be a completely different problem of course.

Doesn't seem to happen on NT.
