No. The problem is the tagVARIANT type:
sizeof(DECIMAL) -> 16 in Windows, 16 in Wine
sizeof(VARIANT) -> 16 in Windows, 24 in Wine
Oups, that's where the problem is. In Windows DECIMAL is not at the
same level as the other fields. It's part of an englobing union: you
lots of fields...
In Wine decVal is with the other variant fields so the total size of
VARIANT is 2+2+2+2+16 -> 24
Temporary fix: comment out decVal.
Correct fix: add the global union and update lots of places in Wine
to match. Plus on Windows, just for VARIANT, they use n1, n2, n3 as the
dummy union/struct names.
Hmm... this must be breaking lots of things, sending the quick fix to
Any volunteer for the right fix?
