It seems to me that the GetLastError() call as part of the test only
makes room for problems... The error test is *defined* as
dwPtrLow == INVALID_SET_FILE_POINTER
And the GetLastError() should be called only if an error is detected.
In fact, if this test had been just the test against
INVALID_SET_FILE_POINTER, the code would have worked correctly even
without the SetLastError() clearing the error code.
