Have you tried to running two or three civclients at the same time on 
win95/win98/winme? Trident/Engels tileset?

The problem with your patch is the change of the Sprite struct.
It saves a handle from CreateDibSection. 
Gdk does the same thing...
You know the result. You know how ugly I had to patch the gtk client
for windows.

Can you change the patch so that it does not change the struct Sprite,
