I believe all you need to do is to export two variables at runtime:

>> Did we ever try running the test with the standard malloc and using the FORCE_NEW flag? I've asked this question a number of times now, but I haven't gotten an answer yet. Replacing the standard memory allocator with tcmalloc didn't solve the problem itself, so it seemed that it root of the problem was the memory allocator inside the C++ layer.

It feels a bit "risky business" to me to give a version to a customer where we change such a central component on platform with so little testing. I would personally sleep way better at night using Microsofts memory allocator if it solves the problem.
