While preparing a back port for the fixes_2_2 branch, (a simple merge is 
not possible, because other changes to the resource handling in 2.3), I 
noticed windres failed if the output file did not exist yet. I fixed 
this in r12549.

A patch for the fixes branch is available at 

I use this patch currently for the win32 lazarus snapshots, that use fpc 
2.2.2 or fpc 2.2.3. Please consider using this patch for the fixes_2_2 
branch after a couple of days of testing in the Lazarus snapshots.
