    I compiled PostgreSQL 6.5 under Windows NT 4.0 with service
    pack 3. There - apart from some strange errors - everything seems
    to work all right.
    On the same computer I installed Windows NT 4.0 with service
    pack 4. Then I compiled PostgreSQL 6.5 exactly in the same way,
    but unfortunately this time it does not work. For instance, if I try to
    do the regression tests, the systems tells me <destroying old
    regression database...>, but then it hangs up. And this was not the
    only problem. While compiling the system (here Win NT!) crashed
    several times seriously.
    So my question is: Is there any know problem concerning different
    service packs for Win NT? Any hints would be appreciated.
    Thank you very much in advance.

    Ruediger A Martin
