This may well be out of our control, IIRC it was coming from the crt
library provided with VC, in user code you can control it via the
necessary pragma but asking users to rebuild the crt library is a bit
unreasonable;) Anyway if this test has been reduced to pointer / pointer
comparision then all should be good.

This is just an eval for vtune, still not cheap though.

Cool, i'll jump in as soon as you have it uploaded.
