Using native version of SHELL32.DLL (from the Win98 install) and builtin
version of SHFOLDER.DLL ends up in Wine failure:

This situation was already discussed three years ago or so [1], [3].  The
most initiative person here was Juergen Schmied, it seems.

AFAICS, there was no patches sent against the SHFOLDER.DLL.  Dear Wine
developers, can I expect this situation to change soon?  Please tell me:  
should I wait even more, or should I try writing a patch on my own?  TIA.
