USER32: win16 applications should not see long filenames returned from dialog control (try 4) (RESEND)

Re-sending patch on the assumption it has been misplaced.

Legacy Win16 applications display file/directory selection listboxes and 
expect to receive a short name from the control. Currently the control 
returns a long name instead, which causes undefined behavior in Win16 
apps. For example, ProImage for Windows 1.10 from ProLab Tech (a Win16 
app) crashes after receiving this long filename. The attached patch 
attempts to fix this by converting the about-to-be-returned name to a 
short name when called from the 16-bit wrapper.

* Win16 applications should not see long filenames. Change directory 
listbox to return short names when called from the 16-bit wrappers.

perl -e '$x=2.4;print sprintf("%.0f + %.0f = %.0f\n",$x,$x,$x+$x);'
