It sounds weird to me. Could you be more specific. (For example using some 
sample code.)

Right, I didn't noticed this addition to 2.0, sorry for the 
desinformation.:) If you want full compatibility, PE files with MessageTable 
resource (same format as on Windows) should be used. There is no code so 
there is no reason to use different format.
