I checked it out, but it has the same problem. But anyway now I know, that I am 
supposed to have a symlink right there, so that's Ok.

Hmm interesting, though I don't see offhand, why dividing  what objc_msgSend 
does  into separate steps makes it inherently more portable. I will have to 
look into my code, to see if its feasible to roll my own objc_msgSend, (because 
I use it a lot as I found out :) ).

Ah and one more question, regarding forwarding is __objc_msg_forward (instead 
of __objc_msg_forward2) ever really used or can I ignore it, when I run atop a 
current runtime ?

Thanks for the help
