well, this has a major holes:
- since the process creation in Wine knows the created process is not
a PE image, it doesn't set the info on the server side for the newly
created process ; after the exec in the shell script, the info cannot
be retrieved from the parent, hence an error

furthermore, the event used to synchronize the debugger startup with 
the exception handler no longer works (mainly because the inheritage is 
not done thru the preceding step

perhaps, the best fix would be to merge the init_process/new_process
server calls
