After upgrading from 2.6a2 to b1, got this,

Dammit. This is the kind of trouble we get into while supporting older versions of Windows. "GetLayeredWindowAttributes" requires XP+, something I missed while looking at the Win32 documentation. This one's trivial to work around, but people I'm so glad we're not supporting 9x as we'd have like 1000 more of these to contend with ... I'll get out an updated Beta 1 asap.

(You'd think that since SetLayeredWindowAttributes() works on Win2K, that GetLayeredWindowAttributes() would as well... guess not. Bleh.)
