Sourceforge - lost windows binaries

Hello,

Few days ago there were new windows binaries on Sourceforge - version
0.98.5.3. Yesterday I also found them in Google cache (see the
attachment - I am interested mainly in Python 2.6).

But they are not now on Sourceforge. Is there a good reason for it
(for example there could be problematic)? Or is it a Sourceforge
mistake (I am not sure but I think that design of the Sourceforge
download page was different)?

Maybe there is another explanation - but if it is possible, could
windows binaries be uploaded again?

Thank you,
Petr Marhoun

The 0.98.5.3 binaries have a problem with the PNG output, so I pulled
them. Charile, do you still have the 0.98.5.2 win32 binaries to
reupload while we are sorting out this problem?

I can't say that I have them. Petr, you can use 98.5.3 binaries found
here, "http://drop.io/tvuqe3o". Just keep in mind that png operations
will fail.

I've done some digging on this -- the segfault is happening in
_png.cpp on the line

  png_write_info(png_ptr, info_ptr);

and the error is

  Unhandled exception at 0x7c91b1fa in python.exe: 0xC0000005: Access
violation writing location 0x00000010.

when I paste this part of the message into google "python.exe:
0xC0000005: Access violation writing location 0x00000010" I find all
kinds of matches. Eg, this page

  http://stackoverflow.com/questions/391917/jpeg-support-with-ijg-getting-access-violation

suggests that there could be a problem in trying to pass FILE *
pointers to shared libraries. It seems we've done what is necessary
to compile these statically, but I'm just throwing this out there in
case it stimulates some ideas. I'm stuck so far in trying to fix
this.
