First, sorry for the blank mail I accidentally sent earlier... my bad.
Ok, so I have been assigned bug 50  here at my job, and I'm trying to
apply the patch  Keith Dunwoody proposed in June 2005, which fixed the
issue but was rejected for technical reasons.
Right now I can't think of another way around that bug except a patch that
big, but I think we could break it into two smaller ones: the first one
would change what must be changed for the second one ― the actual correction
― to work. Well, that first one involves changing the signatures of the
ExtTextOut functions in winex11.drv, in a similar fashion to what Keith had
proposed; but, instead of adding 'INT *breakTotalExtra, INT *breakCount' to
their argument lists, I suggest that we pass them the whole DC instead of
just its physDev ― that way we'd have access to the relevant attributes
while still being able to get its physDev (assigning it to a variable right
at the beginning of the functions, in order to keep their current
functionality in this first step). I'm only afraid that may bring a little
overhead, so I'd really like to see some opinions, or some better ideas...
I'll be testing that here, anyway.
