The GDI renderer uses DIB sections, so this means our DIB section code is 
wrong (possibly ignoring the fact that scan lines must be loaded 
bottom-up). There may also be problems with unsupported video modes (to the 
win32k people: hey, what about using template functions to write bitmap 
algorithms once and then just specialize them? worried about code bloat 
introduced by C++ instrinsics? just ask me)

I'll try to test it myself. BTW, are you using any Wine DLLs or just the 
current ReactOS sources?
