I noticed only a single vote on the importance of this bug( which is now at
2 with my vote :-) ). Perhaps if all of those interested added there voices
something would get done. Does Herb Sutter have a louder voice in that

Also the bug (it's still listed as bug I think), only addresses float and
not double. Did you ever enter one for double?

I too would like to see a vc7.1 SP. I just finally moved the last of our
products from vc6.5, and don't have the desire to move to vc8 just yet. :)
