I haven't had this problem with any other windows calls that I've used. As long
as they've been in druntime, they've worked. Are you suggesting that that's the
case because Phobos or druntime also happened to link aganst any of the other
windows functions that I've used, and that in this case, they don't, so I have
to link it explicitly?
