Initially reported in bug 18889, comment #54:

"on wine 1.3.13 at load windows live messenger 2009 appear a error
function msvcr80.dll._mbslwr_s (install vcrun2005 don't fix this error) and
show the wlm tray icon but don't work, this is the only error that I get so far
(unimplemented function msvcr80.dll._mbslwr_s)."

I see the same. I did:
$ rm -rf .wine
$ winetricks -q ie7 #workaround installer bugs
$ wine wlsetup-custom.exe
$ cd ~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Windows Live/Messenger
$ wine msnmsgr.exe

shows that same crash. Interesting, winetricks vcrun2005 doesn't fix it (even
if I run that before setup).

I suppose if we implement it in our own, however, that would fix this
particular bug as well, and probably help some other apps.
