Console log from opening and then trying to close Word 2003

The file normal.dot is where Word stores the default document settings; it is
normally loaded on startup, and updated on closing. 

In 1.1.35, on opening, Word throws up the error message "Word cannot open the
existing (Normal)." Clicking okay, the dialog closes and the program seems to
operate normally. However, on closing, Word throws up the error message: "There
is a serious disk error on file ~WRD0000" and after clicking okay, "The network
path where you are trying to save the document is unavailable." (The path is in
~/.wine, on my local disk--there is no network.) After closing that dialog by
clicking cancel, and trying to close the program again, Word this time throws
up the message "Changes have been made that affect the global template. Do you
want to save those changes?" If you answer no, the app will finally close. (If
you answer yes, it repeats the message about a serious disk error.)

A regression test identified the following:
