Right, in the case where you do this:

DWORD refs = InterlockedDecrement(&This->refs);

TRACE("refcount is now %d\n", This->refs);

that's clearly wrong, it should be refs in the second line. 
But refcounts are dumped all over the place, I have a feeling that grep
will give a *lot* of false positives ....
