Slower than findfirstfile?  But yes, definately slow as well.

I won't be adding cycles, just changing them for clarity.  I expect two thirds
of all win32 info/find/dir calls to disappear these next three days.  Bear
with me, please, or this will be near impossible to follow what Bill has done
or why.  Easier to illustrate what we need, and how to eliminate.

I'm very anxious to follow up on a TwoBills concept of hanging onto the 'stat'
handle and using it for file opens (or visa versa, stating a 'file' with the
prexisting handle, idea compliments to rbb.)
