I was just interested in getting *any* binary version working. - The
'other excuse' was stated
in my previous mail: I'm missing the HTML- and PDF-Version of the
working from a CVS-Snapshot on Windows.

I'm not sure about this. - The only reason, why I used IDLE was to
'save/copy' the traceback;
i.e. executing IPython from C:\Programme\IPython\IPython.py didn't work

I don't use Cygwin, but I do have a working MinGW/MSYS 'environment' running
on my Win XP Laptop.
I'll keep you informed about the progress I make ...
