Subject : Bug in linking options

Error Class	: software bug
Error Location	: project management
Priority	: medium
Bug Description ---------------------------

Editing a C++ terminal application. I need to use an external library which
I add by using the Project Options->Linking Options->Additional libraries
field entering -lmeschach 
Works fine and compiles, but next time I open the Linking Options window
"-lmeschach" was changed to "schach -lm". When clicking OK it compile 
longer works (if Math library switch is turned off, -lmeschach is changed
to "schach" (Quotes only to help reading) 

How to repeat the error -------------------

Can be arbitrarily repeated. Just correct to -libmeschach close options,
open option window again and change to linking options. -lmeschach has 
once changed to meschach -l

Bugfix or Workaround ----------------------

Do not use external libraries with libm* (it works fine if the library's base
name does not start with "m".
