What does not
The preview window was only showing a single color. Also the playback is much slower and drops frames even for a plain colour generator.
Registration when you first start. If you use the web-based registration form it works.
Snapping windows out works, but you can't snap them back in.
What was not tested

Loading and saving.
Capturing from a dv camera.
I used winetricks for .NET 3.0 and MSVC runtime 2005. I also installed corefonts which fixed issues with text generators.
