Not every version, no. There is no need, that's what git bisect does for me.
Every version that I have tested after 0.9.57, however, has failed to the same

It does work in Ubuntu Hardy.

These are separate machines - the architecture and graphics card do not match.

The 5900 for x86 and an Intel for x64. I don't have the full details of the
x64 machine at the moment as it is now in use (and not with me).

Whatever is installed by default by all the distros I tested.
The Radeon proprietary drivers I downloaded refuse to install on Ubuntu,
claiming they're already installed... so I guess they are.
However, "There are no restricted drivers in use on this system."
I have tried answering this myself, but I have no clue as to how to find this

Yes, but it still works under regression?

It's an error here, not a fixme. They don't work under Debian Lenny either.
I was also going to try Unreal Tournament (it would actually be nice to have it
installed again) but I can't find the discs!
I could always download the demo, I suppose.

A fact is not an opinion.

But this does not tally with my results. It does not work with Debian Lenny.
It does work with Ubuntu under a different machine with an Intel graphics card.
It still works with an older version of wine.

It works in 0.9.57.
There is still more testing I would like to try with this, but I have been
short on time recently.
I will, of course, update once I have some results.
I tested the latest GIT version too, obviously nothing changed.
