I probably need to svn up, because I can only find luainit.c, no luainit.w.

OK, you will probably know how to fix this better than I do (still
can't find that in the code).

Another question (two actually). In ex_selfdir function in luainit.c
you derive derive the directory of the executable from argv[0] using
SearchPath(). Is this intended (argv[0] might not correspond to the
actual executable) or are you actually after the real path of the
executable (in which case GetModuleFileName() should be used)?

The second question is what is this path used used for?  It is exposed
on the Lua side through os.selfdir, but this is not documented, so I
wonder if one can rely on it or if it is some internal thing.
