The error handling is changed in VC8, see: http://blog.kalmbachnet.de/?postid=75
When we started using VC8 SP1, we had to add a background process
looking for error dialogs and automatically closing them (otherwise
the failing processes just hangs, and our redundancy mechanisms could
not do a ting).
The change in VS SP1 was really bad for us.
