{patch snipped}

I have now been able to build and run WineMine under NT4, and it works
perfectly. On exit each parameter is saved to the registry as 16 bytes including
the training garbage (not visible in Regedit of course) and when restarted the
exact same 16 bytes are reloaded from the registry.

It does therefore seem that there is something wrong with Wne's implementation.
