The taskbar bell indication needs cleaning up. It works nicely on Win95/NT4 but is quite ugly on more recent versions of Windows such as Win2K.

We should use FlashWindowEx() if it's available at run-time (this just needs calling once, and will flash the window as necessary), and fall back to the current FlashWindow() manual flashing implementation if not.

Where FlashWindowEx() is available, `steady' mode flashes the window the conventional number of times and then leaves the taskbar entry highlighted.
