OK, more details. I switched to testing the simplest
function of msvc's setup program: the exit button.
All I do is click on the exit button. (Easy, right?)
It works fine in Wine-20020804, but fails in Wine-20020904 and later.
The interesting part is the 1000 lines after the line containing 'Button';
it looks like in the later wines, the program gets stuck
in a WaitForSingleObject, maybe. I have to kill Wine to recover.
Next step appears to be for me to download
and start fetching the cvs tree as of particular days in
August, and figure out exactly which commit caused the regression.
What cvs command do I use to do that (it's not documented on
winehq.com, I think)? Or is there a better way?
