IShellFolder::GetDisplayNameOf vs. SHGetPathFromIDList

Hi Alexandre,

could you please give me a hint on this one:

My guess is that you want me to write a test, showing that windows' comdlg32 
does it this way. The problem is, I don't know how. We would have to 
temporarily register a shell namespace extension on Windows, then call one of 
the file dialogs and show that the GetDisplayNameOf method is called with the 
SHGDN_FORPARSING flag set, when the user selects a path from the extension. 
This would be a pretty complex test, which includes user interaction and thus 
doesn't fit into wine's test framework (or am I wrong?). Could you (or 
anybody on wine-devel) give me a hint?
