The import lib does export fully named symbols for ordinal DLL exports
with the exception of those few functions which according to my under-
standing are not there or just a crazy thought: maybe there is a COMCTL_328
function in there??

Nope it doesn't seem to! I can however see a _DPA_Search symbol in the
import lib from Platform SDK Feb 2003. No _DPA_Create and _DPA_GetPtr

Wine does the same for the import libs created from the spec files, or
doesn't it?
