I am a new convert to djgpp, and I am using it with both Win98 and
WinXP systems.  Mostly djgpp works very well, but I have noticed a
problem running nroff with bash in WinXP.  The nroff program executes
correctly, but then an error message "NTVDM.EXE has encountered a
problem ..." is displayed and bash quits.  However executing nroff
with the WinXP command prompt works OK, and execution with both the
DOS prompt and bash works well with Win98.
    I am using the most recent djgpp binaries (current to today based
on 2.03 djgpp), and the gpp compiler works to give correct executables
with the c++ code that I have used to test the system.  I do not
consider this problem to be critical, because I can always run my
programs and nroff with the command prompt.  But I would like to learn
why this problem exists with WinXP bash?
