I don't see the problem on my machine. Do the tests in dlls/ole32/tests 
work for you?
Is it possible to capture a +ole log for the wineprefixcreate invocation?
I'll do a review of the code paths that patch touches anyway, but I 
don't see how it could affect things - devenum does not use MTAs and 
avifil32 does not use COM.
