you shouldn't rename to A (at leat in the .spec files), because, sadly 
enough, MS didn't use for dbghelp the standard A/W naming, but started 
with pure ASCII functions (without any A suffix), and then added unicode 
anyway, I still wonder why you would need unicode for debugging info 
(you would need them for the file names) ? I don't know of a programming 
language with variables outside the 7bit range (at least not for C, C++, 
asm... which are currently supported in debugging)
