I think we should add it to wineconsole documentation too... once it
gets written :-(

not really. do you know what your app does after getting the window
handle ? in some cases, it's used to either:
- check if the app is running
- or send messages (minimize/maximize, show/hide, quit)
I don't see very good solutions here... curses backend is intended to be
run without USER loaded... so that would break this rule...
even, if we create a dummy window in wineconsole, without requiring USER
to be loaded (using bare server requests), I'm not sure it'll cover all
aspects of the issues (esp. what the app does once it gets the handle)
BTW, XP introduced a new API to implement in a sane way this window
lookup 'GetConsoleWindow' (for the console attached to the current process)
(in the same type of issues, GetWindowThreadProcessId() will return
