Hi Tim,

We've had problems in the past upgrading to the new visual studio 
compilers that resulted in subtle changes in behavior for certain parts 
of code.    Can you run the NSK vm.quick.testlist on this change?    
Christian Tornqvist can tell you how to set it up, or search for the 
wiki for UTE.   Sorry, these tests aren't open yet.   We are working on it!
