I have some doubt about the sal_uInt16 nCurrentPath usage there. I'm not
familiar at all with that code and have no idea how the PathArray is
controlled as in how many elements could be added or how it is even
used. The SvStrings container wasn't capable of holding more than 64k
elements and things probably went astray anyway if there were more, but
now the vector at least theoretically could hold more elements, so
down casting size_t nPath to sal_uInt16 might not be correct. Changing
things to size_t may be quite invasive though, and if there's some
mechanism that prevents the PathArray to grow beyond 64k elements it's
not nice but fine ;) to downcast. Else it could be a nasty source of
possible failure.

However, apart from that, the loop over all elements to find an
identical string cries out for a hash_map instead of a vector and use
find instead of a loop. That said without having inspected any
neighborhood. It might as well be that due to other context a vector is

Anyhow, that can be optimized and isn't your fault ;) good patch.
