Dear Matthew,

    Thanks for this, I have now forced the 4.2.2 versions in and rpcemu, 
now compiles. It may be just me, but it feels significantly quicker, great!

individual objects. I have now tested it on the old .7 system and the new 
.8.8 both Linux and Windows flavour. Any thoughts very welcome
