Of course.

Trying your way as well...

Ok. I added D:\tmp\pypy-1.0.0-win32\pypy-1.0.0
to the system's path variable. let's see (after restarting the
DOS shell with the changed environ, of course):

C:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\tismer.MACGYVERXP>cd d:\

C:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\tismer.MACGYVERXP>pypy-c.exe
debug: WARNING: library path not found, using compiled-in sys.path

You are right!!!
This comes from my active pypy check-out, not from the package
that you downloaded.

So I have to say: you are right! PyPy does not behave correctly
on windows.

Please take my deepest apologies for not testing this enough.
We will figure this out, ASAP, and supply a patch.

Armin, sorry about that, but he is just right with his complaint.

cheers - chris
