 Yes, that works, thanks. My first successfully finished Windows/MSVC build, 
now where's the champagne :) ?

 Oh, I see. I've already noticed this myself, and that's a good explanation 
for Voreppe's (lack of) builds. That's a rather bad bug for tinderbox builds, 
and we really could use a tinderbox watching over our commits breaking the 
MSVC build (I think I fixed 5 MSVC regressions last week at the very least).
