Zlib problem on Windows XP??

I apologize, when I installed the OpenOffice Python support, I had to
add an environment variable pointing to the OOo modules. It turns out
that there was a zlib.dll in that location, so taking off the
environment variable fixed the problem (for the moment...).

Sorry about that!
