    I have traced the failure to the stat call in UT_isRegularFile,
    which seems to be correctly failing, as the current directory
    is not the same as it should be. Tracing in my debugger and
    explicitly specifying what I want to be the working directory
    (C:\AbiSource\AbiWord\abiword-docs\ABW\en-US) still has the
    current directory as C:\Documents and Settings\All
    Users\Documents\AppVerifierLogs. So I need to see what's up
    with this.

    In the shell script that generates the html files (,
    would replacing the ls -1 *.abw with echo *.abw, and removing
    the call to basename (which seems to have no effect on the filenames)
    break it for other platforms? I presently do not have these
    programs on my computer and they aren't needed for any other part
    of the build. I still need to install ActiveState Perl for the
    perl code. And could someone more familiar with it, please
    explain to me what the find line does?
