C++ permits runtime resolution of methods through a 'v-table'. 
False positives are potentially possible in our current tests, 
from the present approach of 'assuming the library knows what 
it is doing'.  A true fix will probably imply a need to 
analyse the consistency of a v-table

problem is ... this may imply major surgery for the database. 
It remains to be seen, but this is a 'scope creep', and 
presents a time slip risk for the release of LSB 5

is a problem: as the old jpeg, current SOname libjpeg (at: 9),
