It looks like I managed to revert it in my working copy, 
too.  Crap.  (Which is weird, because I know I built the executables 
before and tested them on a 64-bit Vista box.)

I've reapplied the changes and put it back in SVN.  'easy_install 
setuptools==dev06' will let you get it for now.

I changed the loadable_exe() function to be a no-op string copy, essentially.

Looks like I'll need to go ahead and put out a c11 tomorrow.  Sorry 
about that.  Thanks for the prompt report.
