      Found something else interesting:

      When my shell first opens, I do the following:

      V:\>gvim

      [gvim appears, with the icon issues]

      V:\>set PA
      Path=D:\BIN;D:\vim\vim57;D:\SUN\jdk1.3\bin;D:\emacs-20.7\bin;V:\EMS\bin\Wind
      ows;

      Loadbuild\bin\perl\bin;S:\LoadBuild\bin\OSE\win32\bin

      [I just removed one duplicate entry from the end, S:\Loadbuild\bin]

      V:\>gvim

      [gvim appears, with normal icons]

      Also, it doesn't appear to matter which part of the path I change (for
      instance, I can remove "emacs" from the path, or the duplicate "vim" path
      component). If I change it, the problem goes away.. So I guess it's not the
      long filename problem..?

      Bizarre, n'est pas?

      Perhaps some of the icons don't agree with the GPL? :-)

      It's the only explanation I could think of why some icons work and some
      don't.
      Try using "dir" or "ls" (if you have it) on the place where the icons are.
      If
      you see those ~1 names you might have to unpack them again. Perhaps with a
      different unzip program, perhaps in another directory (that supports VFAT).
