No, it doesn't fix it :-(

My problem sounds a little different to yours.  You talk above about 
"... when Request.so is linked...", but my build process doesn't get 
that far.

Under MM 6.03 it used to build libapreq.lib, then Request.dll then 
Cookie.dll.
Now, under MM 6.12, it builds libapreq.lib, then falls over 
("boot_libapreq" unresolved) when trying to build libapreq.dll.

It seems likely that if my build ever got as far as trying to build 
Request.dll then it would fail without your patch, and your patch would 
fix that bit, but at the moment I'm not getting that far.

Steve
