Hmm, msdn documentation and Wine are not the same here.

If you compile yourself, open the file ./windows/user.c in your editor
and go to the function ExitWindowsEx(). The last lines are:

|     HeapFree( GetProcessHeap(), 0, list );
|     if (result) ExitKernel16();
|     return FALSE;
| }

This is around line nr. 333. Change the FALSE into TRUE and recompile.
Report what difference that makes.
