Dan, I'm sorry, I didn't mean to imply that support for the standard installer
was not necessary.

I did, however, get the standard installer to mostly work.  By 

1) installing wine-config-sidenet-1.8.6.tgz
(http://sidenet.ddo.jp/winetips/config.html) first (installs IE), then 
2) running "apt-get install wine" on my Debian system, with wine.sourceforge.net
in my sources list, to upgrade to 20050930, then
3) running Turbo Lister's setupUS.exe,

I was walked through the installation.  None of the fonts were visible, so I had
to do it blind, but that's mostly an issue of clicking the second button from
the left in every dialog.  On the third dialog, the one with two text fields, I
had to type my "company" name blind in the second field.

I can then run the software, and it fetches my information from eBay
(presumably, even though I cannot see it; it would not have allowed me to
proceed if it couldn't download my info.)  Then it croaks when the main app
window appears, as per Bug 3496.

So I don't think this bug is valid, and could be replaced with an AppDB entry
telling you to have IE installed first, if that indeed is the determining
factor.  There may need to be a bug entry, however, for the fonts not appearing
in the installer, if there is not a known workaround for this sort of thing.
