Not sure why it does look for it, but unix code stuff is supposed to be
trigered only if -user -group or -chroot was given on command line (this
was basically so that Jigsaw could run on port 80 on unix - as in start as
root and then change to other user/group ID).

You should not need unix.dll at all. It should just never be called or even
if called (by you giving -user params) Jigsaw should just exit with a
warning message.

The error could be from an optimistic classloader(should not) or from a
Jigsaw bug (but the code seem to be clean).

What is the runtime you are using on Win95?
