Win32::StreamNames - new version!

My CPAN module Win32::StreamNames had a bug - I know, unbelieveable. Happens to the best of us. The symptoms were that empty data streams were not returned. It is now fixed in version 1.03 which I just uploaded.

The bug was an unexpected (and undocumented) behaviour of the Win32 API BackupRead when it finds an empty stream, and I discovered the fix just by experimentation. Good old Microsoft, guarenteed to keep life interesting.

Thanks to Frederic Medico for reporting the error.
