I get one test failure but it looks bad:-

START: checksum-test.exe
PASS: checksum-test 1: checksum parse
PASS: checksum-test 2: checksum emptiness
PASS: checksum-test 3: zero checksum matching
svn_tests: E200006: Decompressed data doesn't match expected size or crc with blocksize 17: Found crc32=0x3a74e3ee, size=241883.
Verify your ZLib installation, as this should never happen
FAIL: checksum-test 4: zlib expansion test (zlib regression)
PASS: checksum-test 5: zero checksum cross-type matching
PASS: checksum-test 6: checksum (de-)serialization
END: checksum-test.exe

...so it looks like my "fix" may be wrong? Any suggestions?

I'm off for tonight but I will try a clean rebuild of ZLib/serf/svn tomorrow morning if nothing else is suggested...

Many thanks,
