RE: 1.2 Issues

Thank you for maintaining this game, btw :) I see you tossing up a lot of posts. Greatly appreciate it!
Per your comments: I did install gfwl, it tossed out a lot of fixmes, but the first time around it did actually install. I did override msasn1.dll before installing, and I did set the default settings category to Windows 7. Like I said, I did everything to the letter.
I'm in Canada, so yes, still in North America- the patch thusly is fine, as the retail version is US as well.
There is one interesting caveat however: I am unable to remove gfwl using wine uninstaller... I attempt to either modify or remove the app, and it just does nothing. I'm thinking something is/was botched upon install. But it doesn't make any sense to me. Either I've bad luck, or there is something wrong with wine at the moment. Like I said, I've done everything to the letter. I'll still be fiddling around with this for the next little while.
I'm just trying to figure out whether this was a distro-centric problem, or whether the issue is originating in wine (thus, either way, a bug report should be pumped out).
I'll attempt to uninstall and wipe the .wine/.winet...etc cache, reinstall all of this, and bang my head against the wall some more.
I just got my GTS 250 too, so I've been all kinds of excited to get this game going. Starcraft 2 Beta made me drool all over the desk. Ultra settings at 1280x1024 and it runs without a hitch, 60fps. Nomnomnom.
