Hi Graham,

Greate news!
I found my old notebook with WinXP x86_32, install to it MSVC2008EE, Python,
Cygwin. Download 1.6.5 sources, add my own dissector+update Makefile.common.
Run build, and no python fails happened... Also I was suprised, after
wireshark build done, I run it with sample dump for my dissecter and it not
crash at all... Another words, if I build on WinXP 32bit - result is fine,
but if I try to do same things on my Win7 64bit, build fails and result is

"Developers, developers, developers..." (c)

Time goes by, nothing has changed...
