I'm not sure which you mean by the main module loaded linked list, but I
guess you mean the one we get the rest of the modules from. On my system
(Fedora Core 1), the modules directly linked to wine-pthread/wine-kthread
don't appear in the main module list (i.e. don't get listed at all when you
run, for example, winedbg notepad).

The first part of the patch makes winedbg not give up when it doesn't find a
.stab section, but the rest of the patch is finding these extra libraries
and moving stuff around to not duplicate code.

Cool. If this patch will get in your way, just let me know.
