Some additional information which may be related to this.
When running a self compiled setup.exe under gdb (on W98SE) at this point
(first appearance of chooser) a segment violation is generated.
Just continuing in gdb under W98SE works (the chooser appears and is functional),
but I guess under Win2K/NT/XP this segment violation creates havoc.
The segment violation occurs in PickView every time you change view
This probably should be continued on cygwin-apps.
