Mystery is done. There are two kinds of .REG file: ANSI and Unicode. The
Regedit tool on WinXP exports keys to .REG files as Unicode, naturally. 

Furthermore it is a known thing that the REGEDIT tool included in
Win95/98 is *not capable* of *importing* a key that contains a
REG_EXPAND_SZ datum. It is either a bug or a missing feature, depending
on who you read. 

I downloaded a trial version of Resplendent Registrar
( which seems like a kick-a** tool, and made
the needed additions to the Registry using that tool instead of via a
.REG file. For the purposes of Win9x, all that Perl hacking was for

Microsoft strikes again.
