Quite right, the standard mouse mickeys driver (based on a RMCB) works
perfectly under Win2k, while it crashes under Win NT4. The problem is: how
to pick between this one and the workaround ('polling' driver) when the
detected OS is 'WIN_NT' ?

I'm just trying to find one ! It was reported that the 'polling' driver,
which uses only direct int33 functions calls, doesn't behave the same under
Win2k as it does under Win NT4. This might be an angle of attack...
