Regarding CMake MSVC project files giving problems with debug (python
debug specifically).
Just found this in source/creator/CMakeLists.txt

  COMMAND copy /Y \"${LIBDIR}\\release\\python31.zip\"

python31.zip contains compiled pyd files which IIRC have problems when
running with a non debug python.

Committed a change to copy the correct python31_d.zip file r31622 but
cant test, would be interested to know if this fixes anything.
