Well, you obviously use intel regularly and have much experience. On the other
I've never gotten around to test it in depth... :-(( but was the only one
using it with V2 at that time...

Well, I used them to get intel-6.0 compile some sophisticated code it wouldn't
compile in vc-6.0 compatibility mode. You probably would call this an evil

I neither have vc-6.0 nor intel-6.0 anymore so I really don't care about

So, please go ahead and get the current compilers working.
Maybe I'll find time to test the current intel compiler someday ;-))
