What does not
Help does not work. May just be missing a winetrick but I do not care enough about the help function to bother (basically noticed it hung when I fat-fingered the selection of the about dialog in the help menu to verify MapSource's version)
What was not tested
- F12 has udev rules for GPS devices, so you just need to do 'ln -s /dev/gps0 com1' in ~/.wine/dosdevices - I do use gdiplus from winetricks

This will be added to as needed. Let me know if you have any info that should be in here.
To get 6.15.11 to work in Unbuntu 9.10:
1) Make sure your Wine is up-to-date (1.1.40 is latest known to work)
2) Get Winetricks
3) Run Winetricks
sh winetricks vcrun2005
4) If you've had a version of MapSource running previously and had to install gdiplus, you now need to disable it.
Open winecfg, go to the libraries tab, select gdiplus and remove.
5) Run the MapSource 6.15.11 installer.
6) Edit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf and add a # to comment out the following line:
so that it appears like this:
7) Load the garmin_gps module: modprobe garmin_gps
8) Create a symlink so that Mapsource can find your gps:
ln -s /dev/ttyUSB0 ./.wine/dosdevices/com1
9) Run MapSource and enjoy.
