Very worst choice. Other options:

1. Just truncate
2. Rename and adjust some INI files (works for BOCHS)
3. Use UI21DEB (works for GIFSICLE, WGET, OPTIPNG PNG>PNG and 7-ZIP archive updating)

D3X has BUG's, and DPMI "mouse callbacks" are an inherently faulty and dangerous design anyway. So testing mouse support should start with FreeDOS EDIT (oops also buggy), or DN (real mode), not 4GW nor HXSDL.

D3X is great, but one has to be aware of its bugs (ARF, ...).
