Ensure that GetSystemMenu returns valid HMENU unless bRevert specified

The app I've been trying to run for years under Wine is:
The version I use is 188.8.131.52, but I strongly suspect the problem will
show up in their current versions as well.
You may download a 30-day trial version to verify the bug fix.
However, I think the logic bug in GetSystemMenu is pretty obvious.
After a few hours of poking
around with assembly code in the wine debugger, it became clear that
the app was getting a nil HMENU from GetSystemMenu even though
its bRevert parameter was false. Windows on-line docs state that
GetSystemMenu() should return a nil HMENU only when reverting
to the standard system menu. Real Windows apparently does not check
whether the current window's dwStyle bits are set appropriately, where
the wine version requires this. That's the easiest explanation
for the behavior I observed...
create a project in the IDE
try to build it.
P.S. I'm a big fan of your crosstools config scripts for GCC!
