Yes thats a new build you tested with. I uploaded it I went to sleep
at 4am this morning. I was going to write a message when I woke up
saying the problem was fixed but looks like you beat me to it ! :-P
The version you have downloaded also has GRASS built with postgres
support. I was not able to test pg support at home - can someone give
it a try?

I'm hoping the version I uploaded last night


fixes all remaining issues so everyone interested in the Win build
please download it and test it out. Please note that the installer
offers to download sample data for you but you will need to manually
unzip the data in you Quantum GIS/SampleData dir since I couldnt yet
get NSIS to automate that.

I hope to put this version online on the main qgis 0.8 release page
later today so any issues found after that will have to get resolved
in a follow up bug fix release. I will also upload the msys
environment which contains everything you need to build grass for
windows msys later today.
