Acknowledged. The bug is really there and apparently only seen in NT. I
recommend using the 3.4.2 VM - according to Charlie Lindahl this VM is fine.
I need to figure out what the hell is wrong with the DInput support on NT.
Seems to work for all other Windows variants (btw, has anyone tried '95
lately? just curious...)
