[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.
