Dear Michael,

Thanks for your good thoughts. I had hoped that the greenstone
team will have a clue on this problem :-D .

For the moment I do not have time to check it. I have switched
my code back to 2.51 version because I will have another project
here in Ruby (for the next three months) and also I have
exams. So for the next three months I will not have
time to check the problem.

The problem is either in Perl side or on C++ (MGPP) side.
My first check will be to make MGPP code from 2.51 to build
a collection with the Perl code from 2.71 to see if the
problem is on Perl side.

If I will find time before May I will let you know my progress.
I will monitor this list so if you find something please post it.

Jens sorry that I can't help you now. I suggest for the moment
to take an older version (2.51 is working for me)

Best regards,

Emanuel Dejanu

Yes, it's a real mystery at the moment...

I think you can install Cygwin and compile it using GCC, but I've never
done it.

We have our fingers crossed that Emanuel Dejanu has a little bit of time
to try to debug this (Emanuel is a good programmer and experienced in

Sorry I couldn't be more help!

All the best,
