Does anybody actually use NT native DLLs? I know any time I've tried,
they fail almost immediately, usually hitting stubbed imports to NTDLL.
I only tried with XP DLLs which won't help, but conversely most Wine
users if they have Windows probably have XP or 98 ...

Well, I'll take a look at improving the auto detection anyway.
