Yes. Some accounting app that works perfectly under Windows, has its
menu cut off at the last separator. Because the part which is cut off
contains some essential functions (like creating a new database), I'd
classify as a bug. And as the patch fixes makes it run as under Windows
I'd classify as a fix. Good fix ? I don't know.
The app uses the Window menu in a very untypical way (it's not called
Window, and most of the menu isn't related to window operations, the
only Window menu functionality used is the window list). I wouldn't call
it standards-compliant, but it works under Windows and there's no reason
why it shouldn't work in WINE.

I did some (especially under Windows, where it's easier to find an MDI
application that works). However, I wouldn't call that "a lot of tests".
That's why I've asked for help here.
