If I read msdn correctly, the return value you have in that little patch
is correct.

Return Value
If the function succeeds, the return value is a nonzero value.
If the function fails, the return value is zero. To get extended error
information, call GetLastError.

If you do 'return 1;' it should work correctly, and it should be
accepted into wine.
