Update as on October 2009:

When I tried to build Abiword using MSVC 2008, I got this error.

------ Build started: Project: LibAbiWord, Configuration: Debug Win32 ------

I replaced C:\abi-trunk\src\af\xap\win\xap_Win32Dlg_About.cpp with this. That gave me a rapid solution to the issue, but which is not the real fix for the issue I faced, of course.
