Adrian - Wine has it's own APT repository because Ubuntu universe is frozen near
release time for all bug security fixes.

I received this email about this bug:

Hi Scott,
I have experienced bug 4051 on Ubuntu 06.06 with wine 0.9.15 from
winehq: http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=4051

As i'm not signed in to wine bugzilla, i'm sending this to you.

I have gnome as my desktop. Wine is configured to run inside a virtual
desktop window (4th option in winecfg graphics tab is selected)

(a) if I start winecfg and click the audio tab, the complete window of
winecfg vanishes immediately, then a few seconds later, the wine desktop
window disappears: wine exits. 
mesage in the terminal window is:
>Creating link /home/martin/.kde/socket-francis.
>can't create mcop directory
file /tmp/ksocket-martin/klauncher

(b) However if I launch the kaffeine KDE multimedia application prior to
running wine, everything is just fine. processes active in connection
with kaffeine are (partial output of ps -ax):
 7813 ?        Sl     0:00 kaffeine
 7815 ?        Ss     0:00 kdeinit Running...
 7819 ?        S      0:00 dcopserver [kdeinit] --nosid --suicide
 7821 ?        S      0:00 klauncher [kdeinit]
 7823 ?        S      0:00 kded [kdeinit]
 7825 ?        S      0:00 /usr/lib/gamin/gam_server
 7830 ?        S      0:00 kio_file [kdeinit] 
note that artsd is NOT running.

(c) Interestingly, even after I exit kaffeine and make sure all of the
associated processes above have terminated, starting wincfg and clicking
audio tab works fine. No crash.

(d) Next step: I manually delete ~/.kde/socket-francis:

[types in terminal window] martin at francis:~$ rm .kde/socket-francis

Starting winecfg again, clicking audio tab: no crash
terminal output is:
>Creating link /home/martin/.kde/socket-francis.
>Created link from "/home/martin/.kde/socket-francis" to

(e) The crashy behaviour reappears after I manually
delete /tmp/ksocket-martin
Same terminal output as in (a)

hope this is helpfull
