Ok if thats the correct solution -- some one (either me or someone else) 
should patch msvcrt to have have its exported functions as CDECL (which I 
now believe means that its an EXTERNAL EXPORTED function)
I do not want the force attrib on internal functions for no good reason...
The patch as it stands is heavy handed.. and needs to be narrowed correctly 
-- __stdcall/__cdecl could be internal maybe sometimes?.
