Beg your pardon, but how do you know this?

Because I made an extra effort to check, as part of following up this conversation. Normally I don't bother since there's no point, but since you raised the issue I took the time to double-check something that was already obvious. This is not something I regularly do, or want to do.

just post those notes once when you first do the examination

I don't have any notes to post.  I don't write notes for this sort of thing.

Honestly, I don't see why this is such a big deal. Anyone who's curious about uses of strcat in the MS-Windows code can easily search the code for instances of the string "strcat". No special advice or notes are needed. And if nobody bothers to do the search, that's fine too.
