I just noticed this with a fresh Unix VM from Sourceforge and the most 
recent 3.1a Windows VM I could find (from in the 
3.1/win32 directory).

It's really a pain. Later tonight I'm going to try this with a Mac, 
and I hope it works... I'm going to do a demo for the Seattle 
Robotics Society if I can, on a friend's Mac laptop (thanks to Dave 
Hylands, who's giving me a ride down there).
