Very odd.  My wireshark dev is carried out on a much abused XP system
that has all sorts of odd junk installed on it.  My path (from a command
shell) is 653 chars long before vcvars32 and 797 chars after.

I used to use a native python (I believed that it was faster), but
switched back to the default cygwin one time time ago with no problems
at all.
