VB3: MDI with DLL's using runtime packages

Hi.

I have a rather odd problem with Delphi 3 I think.

I have a main app (lets call it Main.Exe)
The user can then choose diffrent program functions from the main app's main menu.
When the user makes his/hers choice the main app use LoadLibrary to start that unique functions DLL (for ex. Func1.Dll, Func2.DLL etc)
The DLL's form is then set to be MDI-child in the MainApp which is a MDI-parent

Since I have a lot of Func-dll:s I want to compile them with "build with runtime packages" turned ON.

My problem is that if I also compile the main app with runtime packages
a lot of things stop to work.

1. Ctrl+Tab to shift page in a page-control
2. The Ctrl+F4 sometimes don't work and sometime's freeze the app
3. The Main App's main menu can sometimes not be accessed using
   shortcut keys

And it seems so boring to send all the DLL's using run time packages
and then also link every damn package into the main app.

What is the problem and why do I get it?
What do I do to get rid of this
anoying thing?

Thanks in advance and regards,

as jeurk said.... with delphi 5 it's no problem...
I spent some time trying to fix this with dp3 and its just not possible from there. Guess there is no better answer to this question than 'upgrade!'
