Hi, Ken
Me apologizes, since I don't know .. (sigh!)
I am using  a private  user-config.py  for most of my windows debug 
builds because i'd like to have a individual control on warnigs there. 
That is ->  be more knit picking with my own code than i would be with 
the code of others. :)
.. however i try to keep as close as possible to the SVN defaults (i 
wrote some nice little batches to help me on that task).
So, i guess my private user-config.py files are guilty for not linking 
nicely .. I will have a look at them.
