Yes. (I know I'm not Stephan). You log a support call, as a developer,
and say that trying to rebase your installed app for performance is
failing on ME, all ME, and nothing but ME. MS then take a couple hundred
dollars off you... and you get a technician that owns the case and will
follow it through to conclusion. If you are right, you *may* get your
money back. If they find cockpit error... well the problem is solved and
you are short $$$.

I'll happily contribute 50 AUD to such an effort (but it can't be me
calling as I don't have an ME install to play with).
