           Summary: SetTimer won't wait for specified time
           Product: Wine
           Version: 0.9.48.
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: major
          Priority: P2
         Component: wine-user
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: dmda at yandex.ru

Windows supports the following semantic for SetTimer():

hTimer = SetTimer(0, MY_ID, TIMEOUT, NULL);
note: hWnd is zero, callback is NULL.

In this case Windows sends WM_TIMER to the thread queue after specified TIMEOUT
milliseconds with wParam==hTimer returned by the function (not MY_ID! and this
is because of zero hWnd!)
When SetTimer is called this way it returns somewhat special in hTimer, for
example 0x7edc.

Under wine, it returns 1 and sends WM_TIMER immediately, regardless of TIMEOUT
(I tried with 6000ms==6s)

Reference: MSDN:
If the function succeeds and the hWnd parameter is NULL, the return value is an
integer identifying the new timer. An application can pass this value to the
KillTimer function to destroy the timer.
