Probably not, because that would break many more important things. So yes, in
general fixing Wine is the answer, but when we get into low-level details there
will necessarily be differences that can't be resolved. So for apps that depend
on that sort of low-level behavior (copy protection is another example), the
only remaining approach is to fix the app, or just accept that it won't work on
