We've been using VADS Self for Win32 intensively for the past couple of
years, and it has problems that are caused by the use of generics.  I
won't go into details here on the list, if you want to know more, e-mail

Even though I'm NOT a C/C++ proponent by any stretch of the imagination,
it doesn't seem to be helpful to our cause that a compiler that costs as
much as VADS, and that is held out to be the best available, has
problems such as we've seen here.

Happy trails,
