  Modified:    binaries/win32 README.html
    Enough bug collection - the report of removing an important HKLM registry
    key is enough for me to pull our recommendation of this package.

  +<p>Apache 2.0.32 was released as a BETA.  That means it is NOT yet
  +   production-stable code.  After one week, we pulled the .msi installer
  +   on 26 Feb, after a user reported a significant problem that the installer
  +   may delete the HKLM/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Run key
  +   upon uninstall.  Until that behavior is verified or corrected, and until
  +   the service installs properly for all users, we are holding off further
  +   binary distribution.</p>
  +<p>The 2.0.32 port also contained a significant bug in parsing or transmission
  +   of larger files in some cases.  This is an extremely obvious bug when it's
  +   triggered, the side effect is usually a GP fault.  The server also could not
  +   start on any NT installation running Terminal Services.  Both bugs are fixed
  +   for the next, 2.0.33 release.  Knowing all that, if you still insist on trying
  +   the beta while waiting for .32, you can find it in the .old URI hiding below 
  +   this location, with the other Win32 packages we do not recommend.</p>
