I was, but since I hadn't worked on ReactOS in about two weeks I forgot 
to properly install the new files, and I was still running the old source.

Yes, I just noticed that now, thanks for fixing it...

Mistakes happen... do we really have to lash out on each others 
everytime? I'm starting to understand why so many people are getting 
tired of working on the project. People take time to work on complex, or 
simply long and ugly things, and instead of a single ounce of respect or 
thanks, they get yelled at for accidentally breaking something. It took 
me four hours to properly ensure everything built properly... do you 
really think I didn't bother to test?

Best regards,
