wine commandline options

I was playing with Pegasus Mail (silver list) to see what I could get
working. It looks like it doesn't detect winsock.dll using it's own
'search algorythm, so the TCP/IP options don't get enabled - hence the
(paraphrased) 'wtf?' in the silver list description.
So, I tried to force Pegasus Mail to load winsock explicitly using the
-Z 128 option:
$wine winpm-32 -Z 128
but wine comes back with 'Unknown option -Z'.
I'm not quite sure how these are getting parsed, but I see in
if (*p++ != '-') continue; /* not an option */
Should exit if the 2nd char isn't a - (am I right?)
BUT, when parse_options returns to OPTIONS_ParseOptions()
/* check if any option remains */
for (i = 1; argv[i]; i++)
if (!strcmp( argv[i], "--" ))
remove_options( argv, i, 1, 0 );
if (argv[i] == '-')
MESSAGE( "Unknown option '%s'\n\n", argv[i] );
Still picks up '-' as an invalid option. My first thought would be to
stop checking for options after the 1st and 2nd chars are not '-' (ie.
after the Win32 program name), but I'm not sure if that's correct.
Any thoughts? (FYI, no, the option didn't make Pmail work.)
