One is that programs nested more than 2 levels cause NTVDM to crash on
W2K, but not on NT.  The other is that the LFN function that renames a
file fails on W2K with a weird error code if the target file already
exists (this is known to cause linking to fail when GCC runs stubify).

There might be other differences, I don't remember.  You might
consider looking in the mail archives, there were quite a few reports
about W2K woes.
