I've merged this into release26-maint in r71639. But in order to

I won't be re-releasing 2.6.2. We should make a 2.6.3 release
Agreed. If necessary, and when we resolve the problem, we can do a
2.6.3 release. This can happen soon if the current situation is a
problem for Windows users.
Could "soon" at least be after this weekend? We found a small
configure issue at PyCon that forces me to build the installers on
10.4 and I'd like to fix that before a next release and don't have
time to seriously look into that before sunday.
Yes definitely. I won't have time until next week at the earliest
FWIW. The issue is that printf("%zd") works correctly on OSX 10.5,
but fails to print negative numbers correctly on 10.4. If you build
the installer on 10.4 the resulting binary works fine on all OSX
systems, if you build the installer on 10.5 the repr of
itertools.count(-1) is wrong on 10.4 systems.
Do you have an issue number for this? Either way, please make sure
there's a release blocker issue on 2.6 for this problem.
