   Actually I suspect there's another problem with your patch. since you
cast the return values to void*, WINE_UNICODE_TEXT("abc")+1 will very
likely be wrong. Also I believe void* arithmetic is a gcc extension.

   Do you have a lot of places where your application uses
WINE_UNICODE_TEXT with a character? I just know of a <10 places in the
MFC. Alexandre suggests we just handle the string case and let it fail
at compile time if it is used with a char. It may be better than
compiling fine but doing incorrect things.
