RE: rebase for setup (curl)

One more follow-up:

I'm not sure what I did, however I tried it while logged in as an
administrative user on my Win2K box (where all this started). It built

So, I tried again while logged in as a non-admin (same test as I ran
nearer the start of this thread). But this time, it builds re-basable!

Don't have any idea at all why it didn't work before but now it does.
Not sure if I care, unless it happens again. I will make every effort to
verify re-basability before releasing new versions, just in case this
crops up again...

Thanks for your help,

Well, I'm no closer to understanding why it didn't work on my Win2k box
at work. However, at home on my WinXP-pro box, it builds re-basable with
no difference in how I did it.

The only thing I can think of is that on my Win2k box, I don't usually
log in as an administrator; on my WinXP box, I also don't, but I did
while I ran this test...

I'll give it a try as an administrative account on Win2k and see if that
makes any difference - if so I'll let you all know.

Of course, you can expect my next curl package update to be built on my
WinXP box ;-) They're testing a new release now, so it should be within
a couple weeks.
