I think we're tracking this in bugzilla - I was poking at it the other

Basically it's not at all obvious from MSDN how WM_QUIT is generated
from a window being destroyed. I rather suspect that Microsofts
defwndproc notices when the window being destroyed is the last one owned
by the thread and then does a PostQuitMessage (which we do not). That
behaviour should be verified by test case first though.

I have a feeling Alexandre should know about this - it seems like a
rather core bug to still be around in Wine after all this time. I guess
most apps do PostQuitMessage themselves....
