Yes WDC I know, but for some problems 1) we can gain much efficiency
with getting help from guys that are familiar with the environment and
 2) we also allow the committers to know a problem and improve the
sources. That's the way an open source group works IMHO :)

Now that the problem is solved for me, it is for all MacOSX+Intel icc guys.

Cheers,
Mathieu
