           Summary: Some entries from wine.inf not transferred into
           Product: Wine
           Version: 1.1.33
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.5
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: minor
          Priority: P2
         Component: tools
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org

The wine.inf mechanisms are unknown to me, but I naively expect the entries
therein to help create the registry. So I'm wondering why a few are missing.
I've already observed random missing entries in the past (e.g. the NT hotfix
Q246009). Here I'm on a Mac, but I've seen this bug on Linux as well.

While wine.inf contains

a diff against a newly created .wine gives:
diff -r .wine-git/system.reg .wine/system.reg
< [Hardware\\DEVICEMAP\\PARALLEL PORTS] 1251580439
< @=""
< [Hardware\\DEVICEMAP\\SERIALCOMM] 1251580439
< @=""
as well as missing Hardware\Description\... which I believe are generated upon

and, BTW
Only in .wine-git/drive_c/windows/system32: ddeml.dll
Only in .wine-git/drive_c/windows/system32/spool/drivers: w32x86
Only in .wine-git/drive_c/windows/system32/spool/drivers: win40
the last two I don't know anything about.

The missing ddeml.dll is surprising, given that Wine ballooned recently and
threw many many libraries into windows/system32/.  Now ddeml would be missing?

IIRC, registry entries were particularly missing when Wine threw an error upon
err:ntdll:RtlpWaitForCriticalSection section 0x7bc8d404 "loader.c:
loader_section" wait timed out in thread 0021, blocked by 0009, retrying (60
AJ improved the situation a few releases ago, but the error never disappeared
entirely (neither on Linux nor Mac). It still appears for both new .wine
prefixes *and* updates. Ok, I should post that separately.
