it boiled down that Andi added a lot of functions in the user32 spec file,
with no implementation provided. These functions are mostly only implemented
in recent windows version, and Notes has to cope with these functions not
available. But as we added them in the spec file, this request will be
granted, but later fails when this function should be executed.

I notified Andi, but got no feedback so long.
