That is exactly what the case is. There is only a couple of ways to savely
access global data across DLL's in Windows, probably the safest is to use
CreateFileMapping() with a named memory space. This way if the space was
already created by a previous instance of the DLL it will open that space
and not create a new one. It used to be possible to pass global pointers
across DLL's in Windows 3.x and to some extent with Win 9x, but it's more or
less down right illegal in Win NT x. It is legal however for a memory space
allocated with GlobalAlloc to be passed to the calling application (or DLL)
