This what I think that is happening, also including a MF_BITMAP flag to
the fFlags field if for backward compatibility it is needed.

I attach it here now (bzip2'ed for once because of its size). Before
submitting to wine-patches,  I need some time to review the code once
more for remnants of old way of thinking and to get rid of the
IS_xxxx_ITEM macro's ( or rename them to reflect the true intention).

You tests from 4004.patch2 are included. I just removed the todo_wine{}
which is a probably a good sign.
