The game runs, gets past the intro movies, and I can walk around, open a door or read Atrus' note.
What does not
However, interacting with a certain object (the rectangular box here on the right) crashes the game, with a message of " *** stack smashing detected *** "
Also, the mouse cursor looks wrong, being semitransparent on an opaque background.
What was not tested
Most of the game, since the above bug probably renders it unplayable.

I was able to play Myst fairly well using the git revision from 20070624.
In order to install Myst, you will need to run winecfg and set the Operating System to Windows 95. You can do this either globally or per-exe (which is what I'd recommend) by clicking "Add Application." You'll want to make sure that the installer.exe on the Myst CD is set to Windows 95.
Run the installer with WINE and install Myst and quicktime. Both of these installers ran perfectly for me.
If you are doing a per-exe Windows 95 configuration, then you'll have to set myst.exe to use Windows 95 in winecfg. Otherwise, myst.exe may crash saying, "Myst was designed for Windows 95. You are running Windows NT." depending on what you have for your global settings.
Now, you can run myst.exe :)
