commctrl: dialog theming

I'm no longer able to run programs that require the native comctl32 and 
commctrl DLLs, since updating to today's CVS.  Could it be related to 
these theme patches?

It seems that now, if you override comctl32 for any app (or globally), 
even WineCfg itself will error out with the error.

    err:thunk:_loadthunk (commctrl.dll, Cctl1632_ThunkData16,
    comctl32.dll): Unable to load 'commctrl.dll', error 2
    err:module:LdrInitializeThunk "comctl32.dll" failed to initialize,
    err:module:LdrInitializeThunk Main exe initialization for
    L"c:\\windows\\system32\\winecfg.exe" failed, status c0000142

The native commctrl.dll and comctl32.dll both exist in my windows/system 
directory - the same versions that always worked before.  Overriding 
commctrl doesn't have any effect on this error.
