+------- Additional Comments From vargaz at gmail.com  2006-05-12 10:27 -------
+According to the pinvoke documentation on msdn, the runtime is
+supposed to free the value returned from SDL_GetError, but 
+SDL_GetError returns a pointer to a static buffer, causing this
+to crash. The windows free function somehow ignores this, but g_free ()
+doesn't. We can't fix this, so TAO needs to be changed instead by
+adding a wrapper around SDL_GetError ().
