Windows Users:

There is a new bug fix release W0.34b5 which fixes:

* GPF @ 0001:0481 (hopefully in all cases)

* When you double click a closed window, someone else pops up.

This is a bug fix on the old 0.34b4 version and doesn't contain any other
fixes or improvements that you'll find in 0.65 which will be in beta shortly.
I'll always release a GPF bug fix even so close to the 0.65 version
with audio and lots of other things.

This version is on cu-seeme.cornell.edu in pub/CU-SeeMe/PC.CU-SeeMeW0.34b5/.
To install, just FTP and overwrite your current installation. You won't lose
your settings because the releases never contain any. I always leave the
previous version on the server if you need to go back.

Thanks to Gururajan Ramachandran for his helpful Dr. Watson trace this
morning:

which, in this case, was unique enough for me to find it in the cu-seeme code.
(Here I'd tested for a NULL pointer but was getting 0:2074 which has a NULL
selector but non-NULL offset; I'm using GETSELECTOROF() now.)
