I run it from a DOS window, not from an icon. I could use the go32 target
but then I loose LFN's, and that's not something I want to have happen (I
have very descriptive file names, and for network searching LFN's are an
absolute must).

BTW; I'm running NT4 with SP5. I've tried this using cmd.exe and
command.com -- both leave you at the original directory, and not in the
directory of the found file. I don't have any Win9x machines to try it on
