The destination system has two copies of msvcrt.dll in

  C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM
  C:\Program files\Aladdin Systems\StuffIt Standard

The failure seems to be intermittent.  About 1 of 3 tries it
will run.  Other times it fails with failures equally divided
between reboots and error dialogs.  

The flakey machine had a fresh install of WinMe done about two
months ago with nothing much besides Cygwin installed since
then. I guess I'll just write it off to standard Windows
flakiness.  Why people put up with that sort of behavior in an
OS baffles me.
