I agree with Eryk that this is not a winreg bug.  If I'm understanding this correctly, you would need to pass unsanitized remote input into a function that's going to affect your registry.  That strikes me as an incredibly ridiculous thing to do; anyone doing so is begging to be exploited regardless of this issue.

I'd vote to close as 'wont fix', but will defer to Steve.
