You're right that Wine doesn't behave correctly in this case.  The trouble
is your patch is rather ugly.  First, the style isn't correct--no
C++-style comments, please, and make the indenting consistent.  Second,
there's a leak in the code you wrote, the socket you open to do
SIOCGIFCONF on is never closed.  It would be cleaner, in my opinion, to
use iphlpapi's GetAdaptersInfo, which already enumerates the public
(non-loopback) interfaces available on the system.
