I am currently not near the Windows XP machine on which I made all the tests
asserting that yes, we're back on Windows. I heard from several users on 32
bit about their success.  I have yet to hear about failure on 64 bit -- but I
currently do not have easy access to one.

It did of course work on Uwe's win-builder, as well as CRAN's build machine.

It would help if you could detail what you did.

Not really.  Which version of Rtools is that?  

Anything unusual on your box?  I used at least one regular XP box, and one
virtual XP instance hosted on my Linux box without any glitches.

Maybe other Windows7 users can pipe in here...
