Oh dear! :-( I've discussed the situation on IRC with Petr a bit.
What do you think of this course of action?
1. Restore the darcs 2.3.1 link on the Binaries page [DONE]
I have taken the liberty of uploading your semi-official
binary to darcs.net (effectively blessing it) and doing darcs
rollback on the wiki plus some more changes to point to the
new official 2.3.1
2. Post an official advisory telling Windows users to use 2.3.1
Please feel free to just do this, of course, if you feel
this is the right plan.
3. Work on darcs 2.4.2 resolving the Windows issue specifically
4. Think harder about how to further improve our Windows support
for example infrastructure-wise

Interesting. We've seen breakage with hashed-storage 0.4.10 and
Perhaps this can help us track things down?

Everybody's just doing their best :-)
We'll get there!
PS. I'm crossing my fingers on getting a proper darcs catch-up day
hopefully some bits of Sunday and Tuesday
