mysql-advanced-gpl-noinstall-5.1.29-rc-win32's mysqld crashes on startup.

Approximately 4 Windows errors are thrown before the attempt is finally aborted.
Other Windows 32bit packages tested as expected.

I have attached the Windows error report contents as well as the vsebuild.err files.

How to repeat:
Using the above package, attempt to start mysqld.

Suggested fix:
Suspect it was something in the build process that went wrong.

Thanks to Omer:

The server will work if passed the --skip-innodb option.

The failure appears to be tied to InnoDB issues.
081022 18:55:24 [ERROR] Plugin 'InnoDB' init function returned error.
081022 18:55:24 [ERROR] Plugin 'InnoDB' registration as a STORAGE ENGINE failed.

This was an error caused by a bad unzip on the test machine.  Subsequent retests have been unable to duplicate the error.  This package works as expected.
