The Bat! e-mail client. Mainly runs well on Xandros Desktop 2 under Wine (in the main much better than under CrossOver Office3 and 4) but suffers periodic freezes where the program locks up and has to be killed via Process Manager. There is a little problem with icons and splash screens containing transparency - these are either totally see-through or black. This problems were regressions. They are gone in latest wine.
Versions below 5.x are outdated.

Change in 'The Bat!' access to the Windows-Registry => don't work!
by Joerg Schiermeier on Thursday January 17th 2008, 19:37
Since the version 'The Bat!' v3.99.25 the application use a new method to access the registry. This don't work properly. 'The Bat!' always asks at startup for its settings.
See also the changelog of Ritlabs (v3.99.25):
[ ] Under Windows XP Professional x64 Edition, Windows Vista and later or Windows Server 2003 SP1, Windows Server 2008 and later, The Bat! uses the new advanced API call RegGetValue to read string configuration from the Registry.
[ ] The Bat! now uses the new format of Authenticode signatures. The new format provides a description of the signed content and the URL with more information about the signed content.
[ ] New, native Windows Vista file open and save dialogs are used under this version of Windows.
The 'new advanced API call RegGetValue' will not work. So stay in the version v3.99.24. This is nice and work with all features. The 'grey icon' - problem is solved in wine up to wines version 0.50.
