This should not be. I suppose you use the `md5sum.exe' of the Pseudo-Image Kit
(http://cdimage.debian.org/~costar/pseudo-image-kit/), and otherwise you
should try that one. For example `md5sum md5sum.exe' should give exactly the
same result on Linux and Windows. If it doesn't, please report back and tell
me both md5sum outputs.
