Hi Folks, 

so py-trunk revision 37463 passes for both on win32 
(with english locale) and linux for me.  Thanks 
to Brian for bouncing things back and forth a bit.   

Note that you may now run remote Windows pylib tests 
in an ad-hoc way from your linux/osx machine: 


    * get py/execnet/script/loop_socketserver.py and
      socketserver.py to the windows machine

    * run loop_socketserver.py 

local/driving side: 

* go to a clean checkout of http://codespeak.net/svn/py/trunk
* copy "py/misc/conftest-socketgatewayrun.py" to 
  "conftest.py" somewhere above your py-trunk hierarchy

* edit the new conftest.py file to contain the correct
  'socketserveradr' (the one, where loop_socketserver.py
  was started on)

* start py.test to do ad-hoc testing of your WC, using the
  custom Session found in the new conftest.py: 

    py.test --session=MySession py/path/local 

Most options should just work (not e.g. --pdb though). 
There are a few rough edges partly because i don't manage
some win32 process/socket details correctly, i guess. 

have fun,
