I tested the core client, as well as scripting of course. Can't live without my scripts. :)
What does not
The new script editor does not render properly, the text extends too far to the left, flowing from the gutter (line numbers).
What was not tested
Most of the 100 small dialogs that never see regular use in mIRC.
My last mIRC experience on wine was resolved by a clean wine drive. I believe it was caused by a native msvcrt.dll, which tends to mess up a few programs in Wine. I Didn't know this (you probably might) but using wineconfig one can experiment with disabling native dlls and using wine's built in ones, which I personally would recommend doing globally and only using native dlls that wine already provides for specific programs that need them (using the specific program configurations wineconfig allows you to make). (If someone is verifying this by hand, you can remove my 0.9.53 test data for mIRC, as it the garbage rating was not wine's fault as I thought at the time)

There is a bug (#5935) in WINE, that causes mIRC not to redraw different list types correctly, when the list is contained in a mIRC MDI child, that is maximised.
The solution at this time, is to load the following mIRC script: http://code.google.com/p/winefix/source/browse/trunk/winefix.mrc
This script should not interfere with any other functions of mIRC.
