The PythonLabs build (& I think the ActiveState build) is built with
MSVC 6. I understand that MSVC 7 has an incompatible C runtime, which is
the source of the problem (particularly in relation to file handles).
If you choose to build the Python installation you will be using, MSVC 7
is Ok (there were several issues which I think have been resolved).
