Well, we don't really know how the system dlls are built, they could
have different compiler flags and pragmas than the msvcrt, just to
protect them against this sort of thing (I doubt a system like Delphi
would really need msvcrt, so it wouldn't have to conform to the MSVC
ABI, it'd just have to not crash the system DLLs). I don't know, but
it's a possibility I wouldn't dismiss out of hand.
