It didn't occur to me that using a native dll illustrates something that devs are interested in fixing in the builtin libs, I feel/felt kind of like I'm whining about awesome free software.
Yes, the developers are very interested in building and fixing Wine's 
built-in dll functionality to mimic, as close as legally possible, 
native .dll functionality.

You are not whining, but are pointing out shortcomings of Wine's 
built-in .dll functionality.  And software never gets better unless 
someone does something about it.  Filing as complete as possible bug 
reports is a step in that direction.

Keep on looking at problems with Wine.  We can use all the help we can get.
