Hi Tan,

This looks like it could be similar to the bug I observed in
http://github.com/erlang/otp/commit/f3b6a575fceb957805c3b8d8af796a749cbad61c.
 In fact, it looks like you could easily modify that patch to work in
your case.  Check
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms716219%28VS.85%29.aspx for
details.

Cheers,
Paul.
