I have uploaded a patched 25.3 to alpha and would welcome testing (esp
on Windows 7).

Issues: this is not a full release, it's just a patched
25.3. Directories have been left as 25.3. And I did the patch by hand,
because I couldn't get git to work.

Not sure if this the best way; a full 25.3.1 release might be
better. However, it would be functionality identical to 25.3 for most
systems, and I'd need Nico to do the release, as I never have done one.
