Thanks Lachlan!

The routines have been changed to change the working directory to match 
that of where the CIF is located-- this should be more convenient when 
saving files, storing error messages, etc. N.B. On Windows, the program 
will always start in the samples directory, unless you change the icon

A "no errors" window is now created.

Oops! This seems to be a windows-specific problem: some of my sloppy 
coding caused the program to hang until you pressed OK on a dialog that 
in windows you could not see. This is fixed.

The distributions have been updated:
