Clicking on 'OK' button (just before the delay) while playing Red Alert

There is a very noticeable delay in menu repaints (and sound stutters during
this) when navigating menus in C&C:TFD games. During the delay, the mouse
cursor location does not update, and there are graphical effects that I would
typically associate with a slow repaint. I disabled sound and the problem still
occurred. Looking at the error logs, the cause of this is likely due to files
not being able to be found. 

I've attached two screenshots (for both Red Alert and Command & Conquer) of
what I clicked on *just before* this delay happened, and associated log files
where a '--- MARK X ---' (X increments from 1 up) was placed in the log just
before the clicking was done.

I noticed this while playing installed games from the 'Command & Conquer: The
First Decade' DVD (noticed initially in Red Alert, but the problem seems to
occur in C&C and Red Alert 2 as well). I think the freely available version of
C&C is the same as on this DVD, which is why I've included logs for that as

Observed on an unpatched GIT tree pulled on 2007-10-01 (after the Wine version
0.9.46 update).
