i know, i know... but i dont have the second machine with me. I also am
fairly sure we had both same version when I did the tests 0.39-3
extended with GEM 0.91-cvs compiled Dec 11 2006. Pretty old one...
So I thought this error might be more to do with some codec not being
installed on the system, or some windows version issue. I am going to
try to get more info on the second system.
