Win95 osr1 vs. osr2

I just installed the cygnus win32 beta 19.1 environment  on a desktop 
with Win95 OSR1 + a few additional patches, and a laptop with Win95 
OSR2 and most current patches. The OSR2 version seems to be fairly 
stable, but the OSR1 locks up at frequent but somewhat random places.

Is this something I can fix somehow? I have cleaned up the DOS paths 
and set up the PIF paths everywhere I can find, to an equal level, as 
near as I can find. Or is this something inherent in pre OSR2 Win95? Or 
is there a particular Win95 patch that I need? Is there a more recent 
level available that might address this? Or do I need to apply for an 
upgrade to my desktop PC to one of those new ones they are giving out 
now that have OSR2 or even Win98 on them?
