There are quite a few places in User/User32 where the same function is 
in the Win16 and Win32 API. I think the answer may be in how it is 
exported from the spec file but I am not sure. I only deal with 
breaking/cleanup of the code.

Yes this is a problem. 16 bit installers are going to be a problem for 
us on ReactOS so i am interested in a solution also.
