Will look into this problem more this evening.

Yes, it is the only one right now. Like you, I do very little Windows 
development, the windows (cygwin) version of Boxi is much less tested than 
the Linux version, older, and has more rough edges.

Please could you try with the command-line version that comes with Boxi. 
I'm afraid Boxi is still very experimental and somewhat unstable. It's 
more of a developers test release than something I would give to an end 
user right now.

One of those rough edges :-) I think this is fixed in CVS, but a number of 
other things are broken right now so it's in no fit state for release.

Cheers, Chris.
