Just an interesting aside on this.
This is the main reason why windoze has to be restarted
when libs etc. are installed. Doze can't auto update a file
like this when processes using it stop. Even if it could
everything is so interdependent, that usually a restart
would still be required. It would help though. Hmm wonder
does Win2K fix this?
