ICC v9 for Windows, running from Visual Studio 2003, WinXP.
compiles ok, but linking takes minutes
mcpcom.exe just allocates about 700k each second, until it gets to well over 500Meg, and then i have to cancel it.
Only happens in release build, debug build is quick (on par with msvc linker).
Looks exactly like a memory leak in mcpcom.exe
I have 'Whole Program Optimz" turned off, (as i know in msvc that adds about 500% to build time).
