I have used Star Wars: X-Wing Alliance, one of the programs apparently affected
by this bug.  The previously-mentioned symptoms (the game ceasing to work when
you 'alt-tab' out of them and the game appearing as 'Not responding' in the
Task Manager) occur when I use X-Wing Alliance on old Windows 95 and Windows 98
computers with DirectX 6.
