Yes Helen, but as far as I understand, that bug is the one that let the
replacement happen (A). The basic bug (B) -- attempting the replacement --
is not on Microsoft side as far as I know, but on the Interbase installer
side. In the absence of (B), (A) would have no impact.

When I was victim of that MSVCRT.DLL replacement some time ago, I
investigated and wrote a tiny setup with InstallShield 6 to test it. It
didn't happen. InstallShield did not attempt the replacement, and all was
fine, bug or not in Windows 2000.
