I played around with this for a while, and I can't seem to find anyway to get 
this signal to work with any combination of #defines (%ModuleHeader and 
%TypeHeader) or changing WId to unsigned long in the sip file. It seems like 
that should be possible (esp given the msg you referenced), so I may be 
screwing up something else.

I'll give another look later today.

Was anything changed in sip?
