Mine neither - ``operator.pyd``

This could be an oddity of my windoze setup I suppose, but it's a fairly
normal - XP SP2 running Activepython 2.4.2

It happens consistently, including on another machine running a Movable
Python distribution frozen from the original machine. (It's also XP
SP2).  (The Movable Python machine is the one I'm using now.)

Is it still worth me filing this as a bug report ?

All the best,
