WM_CTLCOLORSTATIC windows vs. wine demonstration program

InDesign CS crashes while creating the File Open or File Place dialogs.

See http://wiki.winehq.org/AdobeIndesign for a download link and instructions
to get InDesign CS running.

The InDesign open and place dialogs are customised open file dialogs, created
using dialog templates.  The crash is due to a null pointer dereference by the
application during the CDN_INITDONE WM_NOTIFY callback from the
FileOpenDlgProc95 function comdlg32/filedlg.c.  

The root cause can be traced further back to the WM_INITDIALOG callback.  This
passes a pointer to a data structure via the lCustData field of the
OPENFILENAME structure which I assume is being stored in memory for later
callbacks (e.g. WM_NOTIFY) to use.

Looking further into into the WM_INITDIALOG callback, during this a WM_SETTEXT
message is sent to a group-box control on the dialog box.  On wine this results
in a WM_CTLCOLORSTATIC callback to the dialog, however this callback does not
occur on windows.  I believe this spurios WM_CTLCOLORSTATIC callback is the
cause of the crash. 

I have reproduced this problem with a small demo program (see attached). This
basically creates a new dialog box and when it receives it WM_INITDIALOG
notification it calls SendDlgItemMessage to send a WM_SETTEXT message to set
the text of a 'group box' control on the dialog, basically mimicking the
InDesign behaviour. The programs prints the notifications that it receives to
stdout. Comparing the output under windows vs. wine shows that wine generates a
WM_CTLCOLORSTATIC notification whereas windows doesn't.
