When the external libraries are built with Unicode
enabled under Windows 2000 (W2K) using Microsoft
Visual C++ 6.0, Windows Poplog seems to be
expecting ASCII strings in various places:

"popusername =>" and "popdirectory =>" yield a
Unicode chunk in an ASCII length. The text of the
INVOLVES line of a mishap seems to be truncated.
Command line processing fails, without an error
message, e.g. mkimage fails, leaving the session inside
Poplog.

If Unicode compilation is disabled, all of these problems
go away.

    There is a specific problem with the command line processing
    under NT with Unicode enabled. This prevents the proper
    building of startup and other saved images. ASCII + NT and
    the Windows 9x support seem to be OK, (although there are
    other limitations in the Windows 9x support).

    If the build proceeds in the correct order, the problem is
    resolved.
