Hmm, we don't have the same problem. We are using
- wine-20031212
- DCOM98
- IE6 SP1

ComboBoxes are working in the same screwed up way they do under Windows:
You have to type the first letter of the desired entry as many times as
it's position in the list is (starting the count with the first entry
with the typed letter) instead of just typing the word as it is. Who
ever had this simple minded idea at M$ did never use it!!!

Perhaps you can tell us whether you have a solution for the following
two anoying problems with IE6 that most of us have?

1. new windows simply don't work
2. favorites don't work

"Never touch a running system! Never run a touching system?
          Never run a touchy system!!!"
