           Summary: Difficulty to use wine within automated tools
           Product: Wine
           Version: 0.9.1.
          Platform: Other
               URL: http://www.office2pdf.lll.lu
        OS/Version: other
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: wine-binary
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: wine at wine.lka.org.lu

Up until wine-20041201-0.1, wine used to include button labels in the X  
properties of its windows. For instance, an OK button would be recognizable by  
its name "OK" in the xwininfo -root -tree output.  
This was handy for tools that automatically drive windows applications running  
within wine. No need to do any bitmap matching, just looking at the button  
labels via xwininfo was enough.  
However, recent wine version use empty names for almost all its windows.  
Another annoying thing is that between each version, keyboard shortcuts or  
tabbing order within the various dialog boxes (such as print) are shuffled  
around, which makes it necessary to change office2pdf whenever a new wine  
version comes out (or alternatively: to recommend a really old version...).  
Would it be possible to stick to some consistency here?
