Qgis is creating the gpx file, but not loading it. It works under linux. The code that is probably failing involves reading the .gpx file using an XML parser (expat?). Perhaps the windows version of that is causing the problem?

In fact, the windows version won't load any of my .gpx files, while the linux version does.

The problem seems to be that the gps provider dll is not present (but the gps plugin dll is).
