The crash when starting metatester.exe has been fixed in Wine-1.3.35 (in fact,
that was bug #28994).

The terminal.exe application still freezes shortly after starting. This always
happens in about 30 seconds after the application started. 
I found out that if you make the application quit normally, the freezing won't
happen anymore.

Follow these steps with the trial version to reproduce the problem and the
1. Install the application (the installer will download ~15 MB).
2. Launch terminal.exe, click on <Cancel> in the pop-up window and wait...in
about 30-60 seconds the app will freeze.
3. Terminate the unresponsive app by pressing <Ctrl+c> in the terminal, then
launch it again. As soon as the pop-up window appears click on <Cancel> and
select <Exit> in the File menu. Notice that the application quits normally now.
4. Launch terminal.exe again and you can observe that the application no longer
freezes...until you remove the terminal.ini configuration file, which oddly
re-introduces the problem.

According to my testing, the freezing problem didn't happen before this commit:

This commit made networking available in Metatrader 5. Without networking
(prior to that commit) the problem doesn't occur in MT5 (of course the
application is unusable without networking). 
I'm not sure if this is indeed a regression, or another bug that became visible
due to that commit.
