There are two bugs with the NT port that we're aware of.  I have told Paul not
to cut final until those issues are resolved.  Unfortunately, we don't have a
lot of NT folk here, so we've been hoping folks with NT experience on
bind-workers or bind-winners will help us out.

We've also be hesitant to cut 8.2.3 final due to continuing complaints about
security issues with 8.2.2-P5, however in all cases, we have been unable to
find any evidence that the problem is in 8.2.2-P5 (typically, people have
installed 8.2.2-P5, but have not killed off the running 8.2.1).

Hopefully, within the next week or two.
