Thanks. I think I have covered most problems concerning python 2.6 and
windows in the trunk (upcoming 1.3):

 - linking against msvcr90.dll
 - generating manifest for running code snippets (with mingw)
 - fix some bugs with python 2.6 msvc support (in particular
http://bugs.python.org/issue4702)

You are welcome to test the trunk to see if that fixes everything. I
don't think everything can be fixed for 1.2.2, because the changes are
not all trivial (much revamp C99 math support, in particular).

Unfortunately, I have been working on some formatting issues which
were more difficult than previously thought, and it was time to go to
sleep before I actually fixed the problem, so the trunk may be broken
ATM. I will fix this now,

cheers,

David
