Martin, Thomas and I all fiddle it when we notice it needs something. I
view Martin as being the primary owner.

Fixed now. I was running on Win98SE when that first got checked in, so
fiddled the VC6 project files (in PC/VC6). Didn't have VC7.1 on that box.

Just "the usual": used the GUI to add the new file to the pythoncore
test_anydbm fails, I think because of some problem with Sleepycat bsddb
and/or our wrappers.
test_tcl doesn't get off the ground because it can't find tk84.dll.
All other "-u network,largefile" tests passed on WinXP, in both release and
debug builds (although I haven't downloaded the codec test files, so those
tests get skipped).
test_asynchat fails if you run it a *second* time, from .pyc/.pyo file
instead of from scratch. This is a known problem with marshal not knowing
how to deal with a float infinity (don't ask).
test_zlib is much faster than it used to be <wink>.
