Hey David,

Funny you should ask... just today I found a big fat efficiency-bug in the Queue
class (it made AddTail() and AddHead() into O(N) operations -- they should be 
amortized O(1)), and so I was planning to release a v2.43 with the fix in a few 
days (probably sometime this weekend).  So if whomever is in charge of the 
VC++ projects wants them included in the v2.43 release, the next day or two 
would be a good time to send them to me.  :^)

FWIW, here is my current change list for v2.43:

2.43 -
  - Added an optional (count) argument to String::Append() and
  - Added a DisconnectSession() method to the AbstractReflectSession class.
    Calling this method force-disconnects the session's TCP connection.
  - PR=5FCOMMAND=5FSETDATA now processes multiple sets to the same node in
    a single Message.
  - Added a (numPreallocSlots) argument to the Queue::EnsureSize() method,
    so you can specify how many extra slots to preallocate in the event
    of an array reallocation.
  - Added SetSignalHandle(), SetSignalValue(), and SetReplyThreadID()
    methods to the Win32MessageTransceiverThread class.
  * Fixed a bug in Hashtable::Clear() that could cause crashes under
    certain circumstances (iterators weren't being unregistered reliably).
  * Fixed a bug in the Queue class that was disabling queue-slot-preallocation,
    making AddHead() and AddTail() calls VERY inefficient -- O(N) instead
    of amortized O(1).  Oops!
  * The Win32 implementation of GetHumanReadableTimeString() was returning
    date strings 369 years too early.  Fixed.
