Well, if you can't distinguish 16 from 32 bit application by eyes (PE and NE
files are very different), then look at relay trace: if an application does calls
to kernel, user and gdi, it is 16 bit one, if it calls kernel32, user32 and gdi32,
then it is 32 bit. Your trace shows that QB5 is a 16-bit application.

[useless diff snipped]

Diffs are nearly always show nothing to anybody, except who really knows why
he did that diff and expect to see some results in it.

As I already asked, please do +relay,+module trace, compress it, put somewhere on
the net and post an url here. (Also please do not add any other debugging switches
without additional request).
