In the course of upgrading our tools to work on 3.10.2 from our 3.7 internal source (plus fixes - almost all of which are now in OSS), I'm hitting duplicate symbol issues when linking some wixlibs into MSIs - all built from scratch with each version. I've been trying to track down what's changed and, after a while now, thought I would ask in parallel while I try to track down differences if anyone knows of something that could've been introduced to cause this.

I've looked for differences between wix2010.targets file and MSBuild output and nothing stands out as a cause. Going to start diff'ing sources but maybe someone knows something off hand that could pinpoint the problem.
