Rebuilt everything and ran a full regression test, and everything passed.  What am I missing?  Do we have parts of Python that rely on finding modules at explicit base addresses?  Is BaseAddress a relic from the past?  Christian or Martin?

An explicit base address speeds up the loading of shared extension
modules a bit. Checkout PC/dllbase_nt.txt
