That seems to me a gross over-generalisation.  It will create a
seperate heap for each C runtime that's loaded as a DLL or linked
statically into a DLL, but what you are saying here is wrong.

And other compilers don't have similar issues?  You don't have to look
far through gcc release notes to find ABI breakage warnings.  Its just
a fact of life with C++.

It would be nice not to word this in a way that sounds so negative
about one compiler in particular.
