Just to let you know that a new version is now in CVS.

However, it appears to break under the regression test. I expected it to
break for VC6, but it is apparently failing to compile under VC7 and
Intel 7.0... which is more than a little bizarre because I have been
using VC7 as the main test compiler and Terje checked it against Intel
7.0. Both compile and run cleanly.

If anyone has any inspired guesses as to why the sourceforge build is
failing for what appears to be clean and correct code, please let me

Thanks, Kevlin.
