I have no idea either. Its not a big deal atm as long as it works on *nix. If no one has a
suggestion for a fix I will add it to buzilla to be fixed later. ATM shlwapi on Windows/ReactOS
isnt a show stopper.

I'm not worried about it as all of my testing will be for NT4.0 or higher as most if not all of my
WINE work is for ReactOS and my own amusement. atm it doesnt matter much as we are still adapting
simple windowing code from WINE for user32 and win32k. I expect we will make use of shlwapi and
the other dlls ported from WINE in another 2 months++ or so.
