I tried to follow native NT user32.dll in the winhelp() call and I ended in
that magic 0x7ffeXXXX page, which seems to be shared data.

Do we have any plans for that page? NT File "explorer.exe" also crashes
accessing that page.

I plea for encluding some WinHelp Hack. Users expect Winhelp to work. Eric's
hack doesn't change wine fundamentals, is only changes one case.
