Does anyone know if this is necessary.  Is there actually code out there which
relies on ebx being saved?

As a side note, does anyone understand the fascination some people have with
exclamation points?

I have done some tests of my project under Win32.  As suggestions I want
to tell you, that win32 dll's is not always save register ebx! Better to
recompile cygwin with -fcall-used-ebx key! It some grow size of code,
but produced most reliable code under Win32!

Best regards! Nick
