Common controls?

I'm trying to use the common controls. To start with I'm 
InitCommonControlsEx'ing, but that's not working.

That function is undefined at the linking stage. I presume winegcc 
doesn't link by default to comctl32.dll, so I -lcomctl32.dll but when I 
do that it seg faults at startup with err:heap:HEAP_GetPtr Invalid heap 

It does this even if I comment out the call to InitCommonControlsEx. The 
program starts fine if I don't like to comctl32.dll. What am I doing wrong?
