Is it correct to say, then, that it is broken behavior by your app to
not handle ERROR_HANDLE_EOF correctly, and that it "runs on Windows"
only if the files you're accessing are on a local disk?

I'm asking because this seems to be one of the rare cases where fixing
the app rather than fixing Wine may be the right thing to do.

By the way, thanks for your very detailed analysis.
