Subject: Report small bug (?) in GO32

I did something like:

	go32 foo bar bletch > outfile

and it exited quickly back to the the DOS prompt (it should have run for
awhile).  Turned out that I had forgotten to set GCCTMP, and it could
not open the swap file.  However, the msg to that effect ended up in
OUTFILE.  I suggest that GO32 error msgs go to stderr, not stdout.

Actually, a case can be made that they should just be blasted
to the terminal (something like to "CON" [In Unixese, /dev/tty]),
since at this point, your program has not even run (it might want
to have exclusive control over the contents of the stderr stream)
