Dunno. I'm tapping in the dark there. That's the runner I use for ages
on Linux and it was around on the windows build. So I started using it
and it worked (for a while).

The one refers to. (Yep, still tapping around blindly.)

A local version that already contains the fixes described by you. The
box I use it on isn't configured to be able to talk to the Zope CVS/SVN
so I wanted to make this work and then put it back to the repository.

... which is why I intended to start putting the WinBuilders under the
Zope tree for versioning, so It's always around in the correct
(historic) version.

I thought so. But I'm not comfortable with prepping the
unfortunately and some tries didn't work out, so I dropped it.

Feels like that. That's why I'm running the tests from the result of the

Great. I didn't read that job description well enough.
