[xiphos-devel] need an opinion on release

I need an opinion.

I have found the problem where Windows upchucks during first-time user
module install, after refreshing crosswire. It's not a bug in the code.
It's that I have to invoke the compilers with
-fno-delete-null-pointer-checks. The code is fine, *IF* the @#$%
compiler would stop arbitrarily "optimizing" certain checks into oblivion.

In principle, this bug should affect all builds, because both regular
and MinGW compilers on my Fedora boxes are 6.3.1, but experientially it
seems to have affected Windows builds only. Do I put out an entire new
release, 4.0.7, to be safe?  Or just a Windows release, as e.g. 4.0.6a?

Comments welcome.
