Solved: receiving a pointer to the string when cchBufferMax == 0 happens in the Unicode universe (LoadStringW), not the MBCS universe (LoadStringA). Duh! Of course. String resource data is Unicode. If I'd looked at Wine's LoadStringW instead of LoadStringA I'd have seen that yesterday.

(And in case anyone stumbles on this discussion for info about this feature, note that the string in the resource is likely not null terminated.).

I'll post feedback for the documentation. It was an error that the same copy got pasted into both LoadString descriptions. LoadStringA needs to have the part about cchBufferMax == 0 deleted. The -1 return value should also be documented. (Also, LoadStringW does not throw exceptions with a NULL buffer pointer, it returns 0, but that doesn't need to be documented.)
