Afaik win9x is still formally not supported in the 2.6.x series, but after
the discussion in the 2.6.0 RC trajectory, some members did some fixes, and
introduced the SUPPORT_* directive to have some parts that are NT only win9x
again. But that doesn't make it supported again.

Probably the differences are in the unicode manager.
