> Hi, Mr. Billinghurst. When you said "I have confirmed that these failures do not occur in a maxima-5.26.0 built with gcl/gcc-4.6.2", I assume you mean built from the standard Maxima 5.26.0 source code release, as opposed to a CVS snapshot. If that is correct, then I figure this is how the official Windows Maxima 5.26.0 binary ought to be built. Again, if that assumption is correct, then will you please post a download link to this Windows binary built from the official Maxima 5.26.0 source code release?

Thanks for the feedback. You are correct. I built the maxima from the
5.26.0 release tarball and ran the testsuite without error. It is a bit
more work to generate a release but I will give it a go over the weekend.
I'd like to see some more testing before we make the change, as I can't
build gcl or maxima under windows 7 - only winXP. It seems to work OK,
but I haven't tested much.
