Additional Comments

What doesn't surprise me is that Wine developers try to work out issues with latest software, but here's a painful example of backwards compatibility issues crawling out with a vengeance. Starting from 1.0 CE96 functionality gets more and more affected as Wine progresses forward. Needles to say - as it is main workhorse, I downgraded to 0.9.27, and the app works flawless.
