No, haven't tried it, I only know the workaround because I'm partially

Yes. defined(UNDER_CE) as boolean to detect a build for MS Windows CE. AFAIK,
all CE versions are affected.

is so crippled that it isn't even worth programming for CE without some
replacement, be it STLport or Dinkumware, which AFAIK also supports CE.
