This is not the first time that people tell me about this problem.
But I have no solution. When I wrote iNatch, it was on Win95, where
it worked fine. It also seems to work on Win98. On more recent
systems (Win2000, WinXP), those problem arise.

If somebody could explain me the origin of the problem or point me to
a solution, I would be glad to correct the code.

The workaround I use, is to run Natch in a console window on the file
saved by iNatch.
