No such luck :-(

I did something like this:

DCB g_dcb;
int g_dcb_set = 0;
BOOL WINAPI SetCommState()
     memcpy( &g_dcb, lpdcb, sizeof( DCB ) );
     g_dcb_set = 1;
     ----- wine stuff -----

     if (g_dcb_set) {
        memcpy( lpdcb, &g_dcb, sizeof( DCB ) );
     } else {
        memset( lpdcb, 0, sizeof( DCB ) );

     ---- wine stuff -----


.. but I'm really fishing here.

In fact this isn't a big deal, because choosing the
correct baud rate makes it work, but I was just
curious.  On the face of it, it seemed an odd way to
implement the two functions, but if it works for the
majority like it is all well and good.
