Unfortunately, kLIBC v0.6.6 uses the same name as my wrapper. So call to
the wrapper leads into 'not enough memory' due to a recursive call.
kLIBC v0.6.6 has backward compatibility. As well as kLIBC v0.6.6
provides older versions of DLLs forwarding to v0.6.6. So even if people
upgrade their kLIBC to v0.6.6, they will not encounter any problem at
all. And most of all OS/2 users are already using kLIBC v0.6.6.
Not enough ?
