Hah! me too. :)  At least I'm learning a lot.  I have a better 
understanding of how it stores these in the windows object database 
thing under \\BaseNamedObjects and I can browse it to some degree with 
WinObj from sysinternals, but I'm still trying to figure out where that 
is initialized.  My tests will be done soon and I'll be back to work on gcc.
