Because it has bad intereffect on Wine.
I'm not sure where, exactly. Things misbehave (sometimes) with this DLL
present. You get Unicode data sent to ANSI functions and other strange
The thing about this DLL is that it is very easy to implement in Wine
(so things will not misbehave). All you have to do is direct all calls
to the real Unicode versions already in Wine. I'm just having problems
with the fine details of the forwarding mechanism.
