Good that somebody else than me thinks that it is a problem. Then it might be worth fixing it "officially". I have investigated the matter a bit further and found an open bug describing the problem ( Unfortunatelly I'm not a C-programmer so I can't solve it myself. I will however see if I can find someone to help me, since this is a major problem for my customer. I have a test environment set up for trying to solve the problem, so if somebody feels up to the task I could quickly test it.
Best regards,

   Not that this helps you, but I have the same problem running 4.1.1
on a version of Unix, so it's not something specific to 4.2 or
to Windows.
