We have had other problems like this.  Swish is made up of a binary
and a library, and if I remember correctly, in one case someone had a
mismatched-matched binary and library (binary from one version and the
library from another).

But I'm not sure if that's your problem.  Error -5 is a buffer error
-- which I believe means that the wrong buffer size was created for
uncompressing the data.

That's a problem as I have no way to debug under windows.

If you turn off zlib compression does that fix things?

No problem at all.

As people on this list know, mine isn't that great, either.
