	Looks sexy to me - at least at the level of wow that's ugly - but it
really solves the problem we have ! :-)

	So +1 for me for -3-6 and -3-6-0 - thanks for doing that Stephan - much
appreciated - someone else doing the cherry-picking appreciated - I'm in
an all-day meeting :-)

	Thanks !


PS. I wonder if we could move this into VCL with some:
	void vcl_emergency_bailout (const rtl::OUString &rMessage);
    type method - just to keep the windows mess in one place.
