I've got a friend of mine hooked on to TL+TW on Vista. The new
experimental build does have some issues with the sizing (guess) of
the preview window. The duo (editor+preview) crashes too often.
Although we haven't been able to repeat the process deterministically,
but it seems to occur more often when the windows are resized.
