    Wait wait wait. Are we sure there even is a problem?

    Frank originally wrote about "LCMapStringW on WinXP and LCMapStringA on
    Win98" having this difference in behavior.

    Michka wrote back that CompareString doesn't do this, but StrCmpLogicalW

    Looks like we'd better decide exactly which comparison routines we're
    talking about, on which revisions of which OSs, and check the official
    Microsoft documentation of these routines before deciding anything.
