 Could you do it on Sunday? I don't think I would be confident enough
with the testing to release Saturday. While Sunday release might mean
that Windows binaries are built week later than sources are released,
this would still give us some chance to get 2.4.2 to Ubuntu LTS.

 I have not reproduced it on Win7, so it's probably XP specific. I
would accept the corner-case that experimental gtk3-client does not
work on almost-obsolete WinXP. It's also possible theat this is just
specific to crosser, and latest version of it in that (gtk2-client in
XP has some problems caused by the libpng version shipped in crosser,
this could be similar problem)

 These are now resolved, I think.

 Yes, and that's now tested and as the S2_4 is where it affects the
default client (gtk2-client is accompanied with gtk3 modpack
installer) I think it still should go in before 2.4.2

 My other patches waiting committing
 - bug #21547 (find_next_free_port() hangs on Windows making
single-player games impossible for average player)
 - patch #4457 (update specialist gfx to get them right from the first release)

 - ML
