Bug 50

First, sorry for the blank mail I accidentally sent earlier... my bad.

Ok, so I have been assigned bug 50 [1] here at my job, and I'm trying to
apply the patch [2] Keith Dunwoody proposed in June 2005, which fixed the
issue but was rejected for technical reasons.

Right now I can't think of another way around that bug except a patch that
big, but I think we could break it into two smaller ones: the first one
would change what must be changed for the second one ― the actual correction
― to work. Well, that first one involves changing the signatures of the
ExtTextOut functions in winex11.drv, in a similar fashion to what Keith had
proposed; but, instead of adding 'INT *breakTotalExtra, INT *breakCount' to
their argument lists, I suggest that we pass them the whole DC instead of
just its physDev ― that way we'd have access to the relevant attributes
while still being able to get its physDev (assigning it to a variable right
at the beginning of the functions, in order to keep their current
functionality in this first step). I'm only afraid that may bring a little
overhead, so I'd really like to see some opinions, or some better ideas...

I'll be testing that here, anyway.
