Just to inform you that yesterday I again re-build darcs and tried  it with
my old test repo (which was segfaulting, but it was in a frozen state) and here
is the result:

bash-2.05b$ darcs check
Looks like we have a difference...
Inconsistent repo!

bash-2.05b$ darcs repair
Fixing current...
bash-2.05b$ darcs check
The repo is consistent!

Running again "repair" gives the following:

bash-2.05b$ darcs repair -v

The repo is already consistent, no changes made.

So, it looks like you fixed it. Congratulations!

I didn't forget about darcs & Win build, but (as you could probably see on
ghc lists) I hit the bug with ghc-6.2 and now I have to wait for 6.2.1 to
resume my MSYS/MinGW build :-)
