Sorry, I shouldn't have replied to this post.  I reset git to 0.9.49 and it was
good, as have been all versions tested before that point so I have no reason to
suspect any problems with 46/47 etc.

Pirates! uses two cds, and the installer should prompt the user to switch cds
about half way through the install to copy the rest of the programs files from.
 (The files are stored for the most part in a series of .cab files.)

In versions of wine up to 0.9.49, this worked properly.  The installer would
prompt that the user switch cds, and when they clicked ok it would resume the
install from the second cd.
