Andreas, I had a discussion with Alexandre how we are
going to integrate system parameters/system metrics
with X settings. The decision we came to was to make 
system parameters independent from X settings by
default. This is why I removed the code, not just
fixed it.
Look at the discussion in a couple of threads on
wine-devel with "SystemParametersInfo ..." in subject.
The summary of the approach is also in comments to
SystemParametersInfoA in windows/sysparams.c

I assumed that in this case there was no strong reason
for such integration.
I will be glad to get your comments on this situation.
