Hi Karl,
I fear you missed the point.  It's horribly annoying that you always
only cite one line from a mail message and draw any conclusions from it.

Please read the whole message.

There is no nagging about Windows.  I just said that there is a bug.
And I said that you can't make texdoc responsible for it because it's
not involved.

That's all.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
