The problem is not on the linux side and in the past, the Trolls have
bent over backwards to help when problems have turned up.

The problem is the Win32 side. I have the educational licence at work
which means I can build it happily (if they let me that is!) but the
commercial licence is what costs. As the software does not fall under
the badge of education (as far as the Trolls are concerned), development
would need the commercial version - which they're not that willing to
let out.

I'm still hopeful of coming to a compromise with my employers over this,
but it may not happen for a while.

For the record though, I have got a version running moderately stable
here of the 1.1.6 branch natively under win32. Nothing is impossible....
