There might be somebody who knows something about this specifically, but
if there isn't, it would really help to solve the problem if you could
narrow down the actual behavior. In particular, create a minimal
testcase, and verify one case windres compiles it correctly, and one
case where it doesn't. I'd be willing to help with that if you need
someone to run a test program. In addition, if possible, check that
against the behavior of Microsoft's RC and see if they have the same
This sort of thing should work, but I wouldn't be suprised if there are
problems, especially if wide characters are involved.
