I found that this string "&H8000" comes from my code and it's intentional.
In VB you can convert a string to a long by using i=CLng(str). But if the
string number is in hex format it needs to be VB hex notation. This works
on Windows and fails on wine. I now need to find out how CLng(str)
converts the string and why this is different on wine.
