The problem is not that things are submitted for w32 that breaks the
trunk for others. The problem is that things are submitted to the
trunk that you know breaks the w32 build. So AFAICS it will not help
at all having a special w32 branch. It will just create much more work
for nearly everyone. Or do you think differently?

I did suggest before that you establish a branch for things that you
know might break the build. Are there any problems for you doing that
for changes that you know beaks builds on other systems than those you

Could you please revert the last submit to the trunk that breaks the
w32 build? (I think it is a good change, but not on the trunk until it
works for w32.)

I am glad you
