Just in case you need some digression from the throes of fixing the
current windows release:

Right now I am not near a windows computer running a newer version of
GnuCash, so if this is fixed, ignore this message.

For release 2.4.13:

 The GNU way to manage your money!  This copy was built from svn r22925
on 2013-04-21.

Scrolling through the license I found this licentious ;( tidbit near the

  Yoyodyne, Inc., hereby disclaims all copyright interest in the program
  `Gnomovision' (which makes passes at compilers) written by James Hacker.

Perhaps that was intentional at the time, (1 April), but it may be
considered poor taste by some readers, particularly if taken out of
context, as I am doing here.  Actually, that may not even be the current
license, as it appears to be several years older than that version of
GnuCash was.
