           Summary: Strange behavior in minibug
           Product: Wine

          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: wine-net

I think minibug is just a downloader for weatherbug, but for some reason when I
use this installer, weatherbug doesnt complain about missing IE6.

The issue: get minibug from

After installing (dont install the toolbar, because it is useless under linux),
the weatherbug window is supposed to show up and then in a separate window you
are supposed to get prompted to register.  Under wine, the weatherbug window
does not show up at all, but the registration screen does.

So you fill in the form, and pick who you want to see a one-time text/picture ad
from, and click continue a couple of times.  Then you get to the last screen,
and it says to hit finish to finish out the registration.  Heres where things
get weird.  Under windows, when you hit Finish, the IE window closes and you are
left with just Weatherbug. In Linux, it goes to another page, that is blank,
instead of exiting the window, and if you click close then it opens firefox with
a registration failed window and some tips to get registration working.
