I am seeing similar troubles. We started testing Windows 7 and I thought the
problems were related to that and since 3.5.1 is in Experimental, I just put
off the project a little bit. However on the only Vista machine I have, I am
noticing problems there as well. XP is working fine here. I haven't had the
time to try any troubleshooting.
