Hi Shiro,

Thanks a lot.

Ooops. I'm very impressed by how fast you react.

It works also with gc-5.3. I have tested it and I thought that I've
shipped it with version 5.3. I will use the gc5.3 for next release.

Of course, I should have seen that. I will apply your patches this

Perhaps its me, but I had also problems with gmp that I did not
experienced with version 2.0. However because of Win32, I had to
use a more recent version of gmp. If you want you can replace it with
a 2.0.2 release and see if it makes difference (in this case this is
probably me ;-<).

Thanks for your help.
