Hi, Ulrich!

MSVC has a very peculiar syntax, that i'm not familiar with.  You may be 
instructing it to use a particular version of new().

No matter how uncomfortable, the VC GUI usually generates every option
correctly. So i guess an idea is to generate via GUI a simpler project, that
uses the same libs.  Then, try to compare its command line switches with yours.

I hope that can help you.
