If a fallback to LoadImage is added, keep in mind that LoadImage will
work with .ico files only. AFAIK the issue with the hippo.ico file
had something to do with the compression of the PNG file used to
create the .ico file and the the fact that Vista is generally anal
retentive regarding compressed files. As a result, as Chuck found,
'hiding' the icon in a DLL bypassed Vista's qualms about accessing an
icon that contained a compressed image.
