I've tested using this version too (3 pythons :), same thing for odf
and pdf (pdf does still work for cygwin)
http://www.python.org/ftp/python/2.6.6/python-2.6.6.msi I've installed
the pycrypto as well
http://www.voidspace.org.uk/downloads/pycrypto26/pycrypto-2.6.win32-py2.6.exe

We can take this off list if it gets too noisy here, and we can sum up
once we know more. I like having the binaries (mozilla2john etc) as
opposed to the py scripts, but that's just me :)
