Hi, Jamie. Thanks for your effort, as you may have observed in the
patches list your patch is marked as deferred because we are in code
freeze for Wine 1.8 release. This code was touched a few times in
attempts to fix this same issue you are addressing so maybe this time
it will be the definitive fix =)

I have a similar (not so robust) old patch that I used on FreeBSD (and
also works in Linux), could you try it in OSX just out of curiosity,
please? It has printf to help showing the results so a make test in
the ws2_32/tests folder is enough to check if it works.

About your patch I just would like to say that you should follow the
surrounding code style, so the { goes in the next line. I tested it on
Linux and it works for Heroes of Might & Magic 2

Best wishes,
