Actually, you better expect to look for NULL.

If you are writing service applications, the handles are ALL NULL when
your process starts on Win2K/WinXP.  So there really was no effective
difference, since [at least service] apps already have this issue.

But since that doesn't conflict badly with INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE,
I'm happy to let the patch stay in.  Thank you for submitting it, and
next time around, try to clue us in upfront the observed v.s. expected
behavior problem you had observed was :-)

To toggle the INHERITED attribute of the files.  I'm not suggesting
it's toggled correctly [no time to look at the moment] but recognize
that we are trying to create handles as non-inherited by default, but
need to promote them to INHERITED flavors to pass between other
