I have an error message when compiling COG from cygwinbuild:

windres: unexpected version string length 68 != 32 + 8

I tried to revert some of the latest changes
1) The replacement of the $FILEVERSIONSTRING and $FILEVERSIONVALUES with
hardcoded values in Squeak.rc did not solve anything.
2) Neither did the replacement of GreenCogSqueak.ico with Croquet.ico

Any idea?

This PC used to compile a VM a few months ago, and I don't remember
installing anything new...
The version of windres is:

$ windres -V
