Not a problem, just a message from MSDN [1]:

| SHGetMalloc Function
| Not currently supported.
| Remarks
|     This function should no longer be used. Use the CoTaskMemFree and 
| CoTaskMemAlloc functions in its place.

Plus CoTaskMemFree() lets us get rid of one global variable. :-P
No, this isn't a persuading act.  This might be more of my question:
--Why MS decided to write about stopping to support this function?
