Martin it is somewhat related. :)

But seriously, I did mention that which you note, and this is partly the 
reason why I am following this thread. But you are right. We must resolve 
that issue as it pertains to the pyMinGW patched & MinGW compiled Python, if 
you would kindly allow me to. And so I propose the following:

     [1] Can someone please email me [*] the officially distributed 
Python24.dll and python.exe,
          (I do not wish to install the full version yet; if this is too 
much to ask, then nevermind, I'll
          download the whole distribution), or alternatively, and more 

     [2] Can someone who has the official Python 2.4 download the sample 
extension [**] created
          using the pyMinGW patched & MinGW compiled Python 2.4 and SWIG? 
And see if it works?
          Sources are in the zip file whose details appears bellow.
