Problem with ESS 21, S-Plus 6 on Windows 2000

I just posted the fix for the w3-short-file-name / win32-short-file-name
to the master source for ESS.  Some time recently GNU emacs changed
all variable and function names win32-* to w32-*.  Xemacs did not make
that change.  It keeps causing compatability problems.

The fix is to edit ess-emcs.el by adding the lines at the end:

;; XEmacs on Windows needs this
(if (and ess-microsoft-p
	 (not (fboundp 'w32-short-file-name)))
    (fset 'w32-short-file-name 'win32-short-file-name))
