No, you've wrong. For my problem the kind of "work around" that Rein Klazes
has described is the right solution. The error appears by the use of the default
setting: If you minimize Pegasus Mail, then there will - per default setting -
disappear the taskbar item. So, during a minimized Pegasus Mail there is only
the small Pegasus Mail icon (left to the clock) visible. IMHO WINE thinks
every WIN32 application must have it's own taskbar item over the whole
lifetime of the process. After altering the settings, as Rein described it,
everything work well.
