I was just about ready to send the last patch to complete the comcat.dll 
implementation, fixing bug 652.  I don't think another bug is necessary; I'll 
implement Dll[Un]RegisterServer before pronouncing the bug fixed.  Hopefully 
doing this in the next couple of days will be "right away" enough for you. ;-)
