I want to make sure that this problem is well understood. Also to make it clear
that Wine differs from windows in this really important aspect.

For more details, you can refer to the following thread:

It needs to be fixed at least on the server level (I have sent a patch for one
of the possible solutions). Then we can get ntdll to follow the suite.

For a test see attached program. You should be able to run it on windows with
administrative privileges. As you can see, this is something very dangerous yet
perfectly legal, at least on win2k sp4.

Best regards,
