This defect exists in versions 9.1.1 and 9.1. It is not present in 9.0. I've just started using version 9.0 on Windows; the first page of the Emacs Tutorial configured for Edwin displays. Good luck!

Upon opening of Edwin, attempt to run tutorial 'C-h t' results in the following error:

Internal error: The object #f, passed as the first argument to %record-ref, is not the correct type.

This is an immediate "fail" for new users on windows platform; next steps are an Uninstall, pizza and coke, and "let's try Visual Studio instead!" A grievous state of affairs indeed.
