The problem is that CommandLineToArgvW is supposed to return a
pointer, not a handle. But I cannot do:
Because then the the memory object is going to be locked and freeing
a locked memory object is bad according to the MSDN. And they don't say
that you should to a GlobalUnlock before the GlobalFree.
So I could do:
After all this memory object is GMEM_FIXED, it has to since I return
a pointer to it. But the MSDN says that in that case GlobalAlloc returns
a pointer, not a mere handle. And Invoking GlobalLock+GlobalUnlock just
to avoid a cast seems a bit extreme.
Sigh. What a stupid memory API.
