I filed a bug on the built-in gdiplus.  But, I don't think we can say  
that the problem when trying to use the native gdiplus is simply a  
Windows code bug.  The program apparently works just fine when running  
on Windows, as I cannot find anyone complaining about it on the  
various Sirius forums.  So I think we simply have a different problem  
when using the native dll.

The world won't end if I don't get this software working.
