I have not looked into this yet, but generally have learned to distrust
this compiler with DLLs.

Without examining details of the test, but are you overiding virtual
functions in an .exe with a base class implemented in the DLL? If so,
that is not likely to work with this compiler. Functions bind
statically as they cross the DLL boundary (when deriving from exported
classes) so dynamic calls issued within the base class will never see
the overide.
