It expands to 13103077 (RTM).

I actually thought it was a workaround for older VC compilers
and only fixed with > 7.1 B2 (I probably shouldn't post
before my first cup of coffee). Looking only at the affected
lines, I was under the impression that only first alternative
"std::strncmp" was correct.

If you can't make it work without the preprocessor (you could
try initializing cmp in the declaration; that solved the problem for
the repro I filed with MS ) the TESTED_AT macro is certainly
much more explicit.

BTW: I don't think that the using directives are a very good idea.
At least BCC and VC seem to have trouble with m.
