BTW that nested exception is caused my wine's (Get|Set)ThreadContext not working
properly on suspended thread. Unfortunately Mike's patch does not work
properly. I have tried to fix it for some time, but to no avail. The problem
seems that it always returns the same address for eip. I think it is 0xffffe410.
The best way to test that would be winedbg. It always goes back to that address
even when doing stepi.
