Yep. Very tricky indeed. I've been using Wine for a while, so I
understand that development is fluid. I've gone back to build
20010418-- same problem. How far back should I go?
I ruled out keyboard and timing issues; I haven't gotten much beyond
that. I'm digging through the X11 code, currently, trying to find hints
about what might be different. In any case, I'll figure it out.

While I'm digging around in the X11 code, is there anything else I
should look at? Not for my problem specifically, but for anything else.
Might as well make some use of myself.
Thanks again; both you and Mr. Kaaven have been very helpful.
