Ages ago, when Ulrich Weigand did great work around Wine and explorer from
Win98 ( or was it win95) those pictures may have floated around.

The debugger gives the range where builtin shell32 was loaded, or probably
is to be loaded on demand (deferred). Nothins suspect there. 

Forget about native explorer.
