Documented ? Oops, I missed completely this part.
This weekend I have browsed the wonderful Wine user manual for the
first time , since I have now a computer with a working db2html - now
I know what *is* the Wine user manual ;-)
I have not seen where this info is hiding.

Maybe it was  in one of your (defunct)  WWN. I tried to read them  but
I probably was lazy too.

Btw, your successor has problems to get in the game; I noticed on LinuxToday
that the last Kernel Cousin Wine was showing a 'slow week' - the week
where Marcus posted CUPS support - IMHO the more interesting patch
since months for all non-games apps. He is not following wine-patches and
wine-cvs it seems :-/

I see no reason for you to work on this rather trivial matter.  All that
is needed is to know the problem. I should have guessed it but I was
probably too stressed by the idea of having this 200k patch to look at ;-(
Now it's done, thanks for the tip.
