The class regression will require new code which is now running in my
test tree. Modifying ComCtl32 class initialization will fix it. The
new code is for side by side support that is in it's infancy. Due to,
wine is not enough, themes are relegated to Linux/X11, but there are
patches available that have provided us with clues.

<-- simple fix for classes

Also, wine actctx.c does not support everything, this too, will need
ReactOS patches.

TME, I've reopened bug 6257, when the mouse moves over an icon and it
is raised, move off to the caret of quickly move off, without moving
to another icon, it stays raised. I have fixed this (again) in the
test tree with less or same amount of errors from the ApiTest.
Restored the user call API and the timer. The latest patches to TME,
has errors, these too have been fixed.

I do not see anything I have here other than sharing code will effect
anything if I decide to commit it. Worse case just #if it out. These
are critical for themes! This should be push upward not just wait for
the next release with broken class code.
