John Kurtz <email@example.com> reported a bug that windres generates
WS_CHILD | WS_POPUP | WS_BORDER | WS_SYSMENU | WS_EX_MDICHILD when
WS_CHILD is specified. This is an incompatibility with both MS and
Borland's rc compiler. Like DJ, I'm for fixing this now rather and hope
we catch as few users as possible than wait till later.
I've been gone for a weeks now, so haven't had time to catch up to various
bug reports yet. I do have a testcase and will look at it this weekend.
