I've since cobbled together a patch to dlls/kernel/file.c that watches for 
this case and switches the GENERIC_WRITE to a GENERIC_READ. This lets the 
app start up properly. (The patch is attached to the bug.)

I'm not yet happy with my patch, as it's just a hack for this one app and 
is likely to break other things.

Can someone more familiar with the code suggest an approach to do this the 
"right" way?
