Thanks for that update. Someone may want to edit that wiki page, then. ;)

Well then let me just say that all I really wanted was a debug build, so I
can enable debug logging (which hopefully is more elaborate) in a final
attempt to troubleshoot an issue I am experiencing with bridged adapters
(see my other email thread "'bridged adapter' issue."). I had some hopes
that the test builds were debug builds, but they are release builds (which
sort of makes sense).

Is there anyone with access to VS 2010 PRO (and other related bits for a
full dev setup) that would be kind enough to build a debug build for me and
upload it somewhere ? Any 5.x revision would be just fine.

Sorry for all the noise,

- Maarten
