You are most likely building in a 32-bit environment.  The work
arounds for this problem are as follows (choose one of the following):

1.  Build in 64-bit Vista or Windows 7.
2.  I have heard that KB949009
may correct the problem.
3.  Or, you can turn off Whole Program Optimization on the WebCore
project (see "Configuration Properties|C/C++|Optimization"), and turn
off Link Time Code Generation on the WebKit project (see
"Configuration Properties|Linker|Optimization").

The last option will definitely work (I do this for my test box, which
is only 32 bits), though the best long-term choice is to run a 64-bit
