Can you believe that the address appears 5 times on the stack on Win95,
twice on ME, once on NT4.0?

Now that the method is stable (after 1.5.10 is released), couldn't we store
the offsets in wincap, keeping the adaptive method as a backup in the
unknown case? Or are there many variations?

It works on NT4.0. Will test on 95 and ME this evening.
Do you recall what caused the warning?
