If you are not a programmer, you can't do anything to fix it. Those 
"stub" messages are only identifying parts of the wine implementation 
that have not yet been implemented.

For example, let's assume we have a function that is supposed to draw a 
circle. In wine, it might be implemented currently like this:

void DrawCircle()
   printf( "fixme:DrawCircle stub\n" );

So, instead of drawing the circle, it only prints out a message which 
tells that nothing has been done for it. The result is that the message 
is printed out, and no circles are being drawn.

To fix it, the developer should write code that actually draws the 
circle and then remove the print-command to remove the message.
