but here's the differences I get between running native Win98 comctl and 
Wine's builtin

listview: multicolumn, in report mode, without LVS_EX_FULLROWSELECT 
extended style

message concerned:
NM_CLICK notification for left click in LV (mainly in a column for any 

iItem: always set to -1
iSubItem: set to the subItem of the column clicked

iItem: set to the row number
iSubItem: always set to 0

(Note: I don't like either the iItem value I get from the native DLL 
(didn't test LVM_GETITEMHITTEST information though)

also, as a noted difference, in selection. Wine's only draws a dotted 
rect around the selected item (or row in full row select mode). In 
native, the rect interior is grayed if the control doesn't have the 
focus, and filled in blue if control has the focus.

if everything goes smoothly full code of the app should be posted this 
weekend (app will allow, among other things, to enable/disable debug 
channels on any running wine app)
