sorry to harp on about semantics, but "generic" may imply a
systemic or underlying fundamental flaw. AFAIK there is no
problem like that. in this case it is just a "common" small
coding bug which a few random modules have & await fixes for.
e.g. r.los was already fixed AFAIK. and it has nothing to do
with the version of ms windows used.
