You're already doing better than I am. On Cygwin 2.5rc2 and Windows 
2.4.2 I can't even get it to runs its tests properly:


C:\Steve\gadflyZip>python run_tests
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "run_tests", line 9, in ?
     go()
   File "C:\Steve\gadflyZip\test\__init__.py", line 35, in go
     l.append(test_mods[name].suite())
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'suite'

Running gvserver I get pretty mucht he same thing you do:

Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "gadflyZip\gadfly\scripts\gfserver.py", line 101, in ?
     main()
   File "gadflyZip\gadfly\scripts\gfserver.py", line 89, in main
     S = Server(int(port), db, dr, pw, startup)
NameError: global name 'Server' is not defined

Time to report a bug, methinks? Makes SQLite look good  ...

regards
  Steve
