W<->A conversions may fail for many legitimate reasons. I don't think that
adding a FIXME, or ERR, or even MessageBox has anything to do with inability
of a user to correctly set its locale. Not mentioning again that it can't be
approached for every application out there.

Using A version of APIs (such as GetOpenFileNameA) is not an error, or
mistake, it's deliberate decision of the application developer. We already
have a janitorial project in Wine to eliminate W->A calls in APIs, there is
no need to make this bug as a replacement of it, especially since it looks
like just an oversight on the user's side.
