Not really, because it is implementation specific. In
other words: its a serious hack.

I can't speak to that...I've only seen the problem under
NT 3.51/4.0 and Win95. We do have implementation on UNIX
platforms as well, and so I just migrated my changes. I find
it hard to believe that it would work properly under UNIX
either...it may not SEGV or do anything else radical, but
I doubt it works properly...
