It's not like this has just cropped up today.  As I said, Ralf and 
others, including Chris January have spent a great deal of time on this, 
but in the end this was the solution.  I'm not trying to set a 
precedent, b/c this wouldn't be the first ifdef of its kind.  I believe 
there is an ifdef in there to "fix" an issue w/ gdb or something.  I'll 
have to go back and look, but I know its in there.
