It looks like I never mentioned the circumstances where this error 
occurs. Most of the app comes up and runs, but there is a large area 
where messages are printed that uses a richedit control. Since the wine 
richedit does not work, I use a Win98 native richedit.

What happens along with the heap error, is that the richedit control is 
not drawn. Instead the desktop remains showing through a large area in 
the center of the app. With my quicky "fix", the entire app including 
the native richedit works fine.

However this is not specific to richedit. I have another test app I put 
together that uses richedit, and it works fine without the heap "fix".
