Well, sort of. Win95 seems to suffer from the same thing NT does - it
can't cope with nested DPMI tasks. The worst symptom is that you can't
run gcc from within the DJGPPv2 make - in fact, this is the only way
I've found so far that consistently crashes Win95 out cold. If you've
got a real-mode or Win32 make then you'll probably be okay.
