Your previous mail was a nice surprise, but now we're back on earth it
On second thought I guess this even makes sense. At Vista times
NtQueryInformationProcess(ProcessHandleInformation) didn't exist,
so the method to check this is probably along the lines of your
get_query_hdl_per_system function, just faster because it's all
implemented in a single system call. And it's probably still
implemented this way.
Oh well. Thanks for testing!
