No, it doesn't after all.  By the time I got dms32k25011403.dsk working, I'd
managed to confuse myself about which SimH executable I was running.

The new DMS disk makes no difference as far as the GUI problem is
concerned -- the GUI only works as expected (and as described in
the Reference Guide from for simh-4.0-Beta--2016-01-07-e8ea427d
(and prior) Windows builds (and with no throttling, in all cases).

Sorry for the confusion.
