I am using Debian Stretch 4.9.0-5 x86_64
Keyboard has problems with some versions of desktop environment, e.g. XFCE - can't group units with CTRL + Fn
Works with KDE and Gnome
I ended up using KDE5, as Gnome has intermittent freeze up from mutter
What does not
need workaround for errors
What was not tested
Tested everything but networked games
The startup seems to have need of help. It loses focus, I just ALT + TAB to switch to proper screen and continue. The game works great.

The beta patch 1.3 public beta 4 requires a special workaround in order to get it working properly in Wine.
1) Run 'winecfg'
2) Go to 'libraries' tab
3) Add a new DLL override titled 'dbghelp'
4) Ensure that it uses the following settings: 'Native then builtin'
This should allow you to play BZ2 v 1.3pb4 providing your videocard drivers have proper 3D, and you are using the right compatibility settings (Win98 is recommended)
All future test reports where this has not been done for 1.3pb4 will be rejected.
