Interesting. I'll check this out later today (sorry about not replying
sooner, was out of town visiting friends all weekend). I'm using
VS2005 express edition, which hopefully is close enough that I'll be
able to replicate this.

BTW, I'm not aware of anyone using Botan on 64-bit Windows. My x86-64
machine is currently Linux only, and will probably remain that way
until the Xen patched kernels resync with the mainline so I can
virtualize Windows while keeping the hardware support which is only
available in very recent releases.
