	Um ;-) I havn't been following the rest of the change, but when it
comes to these map files - the general approach is to blame the madness
that created these [ we need to drop them in libreoffice 4.0 in favour
of uniform visibility markup I think ].

	Then you check in the version that works with gcc - and (as if by
magic) some toiling MSVC++ / Windows user (and/or Mac user) finds the
problem and expands the hole through the map file for their platform.

	oh - and if you're polite you ping the list / mail a known windows /
mac user & ask them to fix it :-)

	Hopefully, the tinderboxes will help catch this stuff quickly too :-)
