I build with VCExpress 2008 as well (and sometimes with VC 2010, but
still mostly with the old one). After your last fix in r1372102,
everything went fine again.

Yup. Maybe it's some subtle difference, like the python version or
something (causing problems during svn_private.h generation) ... (I
have python 2.7.3 from python.org, the buildbots have ActiveState
Python 2.7.1). But that's just a very wild guess.
