           Summary: Wine crashes running every exe in Mandrake 10.0
           Product: Wine
           Version: 20040213
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: blocker
          Priority: P2
         Component: wine-binary
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: pavel.reznicek at wo.cz


I'm not the only Czech user that noticed this problem.

I have the wine package distributed with Mandrake 10.0.
I use the kernel 2.4.25-2mdk.

After I had configured the conf file and tried to run wine on a brand new
installed Mandrake 10.0, I tried to type "wine --help". The help message showed
up, all OK.

But then I tried to run wine /mnt/windows/winnt/notepad.exe ... and it stopped
badly. The symptoms include:

1) After I pres Enter in the console, I get the cursor to the new line; and
that's all. Wine becomes frozen. 
2) Moreover, I can type to the console and the letters appear axyctly as I type
3) But ctrl-c doesn't terminate anything.
4) Many shell instances don't react and behave the same way. I think that it
includes the instances of bash that were run by the user who tried to launch wine.
5) When I try to kill wine (something as "killall wine"), nothing happens.
6) Then, when I try to shut the system down, it hangs by stopping the xprint
service. Another user reported that his system hangs by stopping the md service.
The shutdown/reboot process then simply doesn't continue anymore.

I don't know if it can help but I must also state that the Borland Kylix
programming tool (either 2 and 3) (that is based on its own wine version) has
very similar symptoms.

I just want to help you with your GREAT task and I hope the bug I am reporting
isn't already posted.
