HeapReAlloc() crashes because of NULL pointer as the third argument
(tested on Windows 2000).  The patch for uninstaller goes to wine-patches.

It would be nice to have a warning in Wine, but it seems it misuses
HeapReAlloc() internally.

I'll appreciate if anybody checks if RtlReAllocateHeap() also crashes on
the NULL pointer as the third argument.  I cannot use it in programs
compiled with MinGW.  Either I'm doing something stupid or MSVC is needed.
