OK. So here's my contribution.
I have a little test program that I threw together for investigating the
DrawTextEx function. (You can find it in the patches but Alexandre hasn't
accepted it yet). It takes input from the szCommandLine passed to WinMain.
Under windows I can pass a set of arguments, including a string enclosed in
quotes. I use those quotes to recognise which part of szCommandLine is "the
string". (Yes, I know it's lazy and bad argument processing). However
under Wine the quotes don't get through and if I escape them with \ then the
\ goes through too (which messes up "the string"). I haven't looked yet but
there is something weird in there. I guess one problem is that the quotes
will be removed by the shell before even reaching Wine.
