What does not

Sound - The sound cuts out during the first mission briefing and never comes back.

Mouse - The mouse has a difficult time making it's way around the screen. It kinda works, sometimes. There appears to be some disparity between the resolution of the game and the resolution the mouse thinks is in effect.

Exiting the game - When you attempt to exit the game, it simply will not die. FS.EXE, services.exe, and winedevice.exe are all still running. They have to be killed manually.

Resolution Reset - If you're able to get control over your workspace after "exiting" the game, you must manually reset your resolution (if you are not emulating a virtual desktop).
