There are cases where applications come with their own replacements
for system dlls, for one reason or another. This happens a lot with
installers for instance, and it's something we need to be able to
support, because if the Windows system dll doesn't work for the app
our builtin probably won't work either. In theory an app could even
come with a dll named comctl32 that has nothing to do with common
controls at all...

That's basically what my patch will do.
