           Summary: AT1 crashes when system.ini or wini.ini have too many
           Product: Wine
           Version: 0.9.46.
          Platform: PC
               URL: http://sake906.assaulttech1.com/AT1a215ins.exe
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: wine-misc
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: liquitsnake at gmx.net

When windows/system.ini has more than 20 lines (not counting empty lines), AT1,
a game, gives a dialog box on start complaining about "memory access violation"
and crashes. When I remove system.ini or remove at least 4 random lines in that
file, I don't get this error. It doesn't matter which lines I remove, but
longer lines with more text seem to work better

So I tried to find out if this is related to file size instead, so I filled the
file up with single bytes until it wouldn't work anymore. Indeed, there appears
to be a limit to working file-size, but this limit depends on WHAT you fill the
file up with. Strange.

After additional testing, I also discovered that I get the same phenomena with
win.ini. If i remove it or a few lines in that file, AT1 also starts working
again. Even combinations of removing lines in both win.ini and system.ini work!

I have to say, this is the strangest bug I've ever encountered. But I swear I
can fully reproduce it.
