Thanks Gerald & Guy,
Since http://buildbot.wireshark.org/trunk/waterfall shows green & yellow on wireshark win32 I've been downloading the latest svn compiled wireshark win32 once or twice a day for a few days now and they all seem really stable so far and even seems to be stable on my Windows Vista 64-bit. My attempts to compile win32 and win64 myself crashed and burned again.
C:\wireshark>set WIRESHARK_TARGET_PLATFORM=win64
C:\wireshark>set PLATFORM=win64
C:\wireshark>nmake -f Makefile.nmake distclean

        rm -rf wireshark-gtk2
'rm' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
NMAKE : fatal error U1077: 'rm' : return code '0x1'
I must be doing something really OS level dumb because, rm -rf (directory) is a linux command but I'm using XP Pro 32-bit to try and compile wireshark as win32 and win64.

You'll need to read the developers guide again.  It requires an installation of Cygwin that provides rm (among many other things).  See section 2.2.2 "Install Cygwin".
