Missing _sre.pyd in 2.4a2 Windows installer?

The subject line says it, really: I installed 2.4a2 using the MSI
installer on python.org, and I appear to be missing this file:


As a result, Python picks up the _sre.pyd from my 2.3 installation,
and I get the expected error about a bad magic number in that DLL.

I think I must be doing something stupid, but what, exactly?

TIA for any help
