[Python-Dev] Python-2.3.2 windows binary screwed

The 2.3.2 windows binary contains invalid MS dlls.

I copied them from my system directory, instead of using those of the
MSVC 6 SP5 redistributables.

There are already 3 bug reports about this:

http://www.python.org/sf/818029, http://www.python.org/sf/824016, and

Strongy affected are probably win98 and NT4 users.

I suggest to remove the Python-2.3.2.exe from the downloads page (or to
hide it), until this issue is resolved. FWIW, Python-2.3.1.exe should
have the same problem.

All this is, of course, only my fault.
