The patch that changed these files is:
ChangeSet ID: 16245
Module name: wine
Changes by: julliard at wine.codeweavers.com 2005/02/22 09:50:14
include : winbase.h
dlls/shell32 : shell32.spec
dlls/kernel : string.c
Mike McCormack <mike at codeweavers.com>
Make lstr* functions inline inside Wine.
The way I check what patch changed certain files at certain time
intervals is cvs.winehq.org/cvsweb/wine and then the path to the file
in wine relative to the wine directory.
