[Wine] getaddrinfo confusion (wine 1.5.5)

Question: How can it be that getaddrinfo when called by a game returns
an error, but when I call it in a small test program with the same
parameters, is succeeds?
I have a game (League of Legends) that gives an assertion failed before
starting a game, as per this bug:
I am using wine 1.5.5
Using "ollydbg" 110 from http://ollydbg.de I have tracked down the code
path leading to the failed assertion.
The game calls getaddrinfo, checks the return value, and if it is not
happy with it, eventually gives the assertion failed message.
Using the debugger, I figured out exactly what parameters is calls
pNodeName = "" (pointer to empty string)
pServiceName = "0" (pointer to string "0")
pHints = Pointer to addrinfo structure filled as follows:
ai_flags = 0x1 (AI_PASSIVE)
ai_family = 0x2 (AF_INET)
ai_socktype= 0x2 (SOCK_DGRAM)
ai_protocol = 0x11 (IPPROTO_UDP)
ai_addrlen = 0
ai_canonname = NULL
ai_addr = NULL
ai_next = NULL
ppResult = (pointer to memory allocated by game)
What happens is that wine passes these parameters down to the native
getaddrinfo on my platform (Linux, Fedora 17) as follows
getaddrinfo(hostname, "0", pUnixhints, ppResult)
Wine has some logic to turn a nodeName that is the empty string "", into
the hostname before passing it to the native call.
Wine transforms the windows hints into unix hints with some helper
functions, but they do not appear to change the contents at all for
these particular values. The relevant code is in dlls/ws2_32/socket.c
When the game, through wine, calls my native getaddrinfo like that, it
retuns -2 (E_NONAME) which is transformed by wine into WSAHOST_NOT_FOUND
(0x2AF9) which the game doesn't like and leads to the assertion failed.
When I, in a small test program, call my native getaddrinfo with exactly
the same parameters, it succeeds (returns 0).
How can this happen? Please, any ideas, to help me continue debugging
this frustrating problem.
Thank you for reading this far.
