You mean you're not just stuck with the last compiler version from the last
time you shelled out for an MSDN subscription, like I am?  ;)  I mainly
mentioned the service pack to avoid any wild goose chases in the event that
you weren't using the absolute latest version.

I mentioned in my last c.l.s. post that the Microsoft KB entry I referenced
doesn't seem to be exactly what's happening here, although it seems similar.
In particular, using /Og alone (global optimizations) ought to cause the
bug, according to the KB entry, but it doesn't.  However, using the /O2 /Og-
compiler options fixed the problem, as did omitting the /O2 option.  I'd bet
something similar would work with VC7.
