A tarball of the source is available at:
Readme.txt (in the tarball) includes directions on
compiling the program, as well as descriptions of
the observed crash under 95.

Cygwin isn't there yet, but it's getting close. Thank you
for the effort.

Actually, I'm trying to use as many compilers as I can.
Thus, I'm compiling with cygwin, mingw32, and MSVC.
(I would also try DJGPP, but I had some configuration
issues I still need to deal with...)
As for compiler issues... I seem to have run into a fair
number of them trying to develop the program. I sent out
a prior message detailing 3 template-related bugs to the
cygwin list (as well as to egcs-bugs). I believe I've
worked around them, but it's possible I missed a few.
