Yup. Actually the code I'm using isn't exactly like that, I'm using C++ and the 
HANDLE variable is defined inside the class... When I copied the text I put the 
definition inside the first function, then I saw it had to be defined outside, 
so I wrote it as a global variable, but forgot to edit the thing.

Well, as people say, to herr is uman. :)

I think this will do it, I'll do some experimentation later and will report the 
results here.
