It turns out that two other applications (that worked prior to 4/23) 
fail even with the Huw patch that disables xrender. They give:

err:ntdll:RtlpWaitForCriticalSection section 0x40b724a4 "x11drv_main.c: 
X11DRV_CritSection" wait timed out, retrying (60 sec) fs=023f
err:ntdll:RtlpWaitForCriticalSection section 0x407a9718 "user.c: 
USER_SysLevel" wait timed out, retrying (60 sec) fs=008f
wine: Unhandled exception, starting debugger...

But I never actually get a debugger prompt, so I don't have more info 
then that.

In any case, I just downloaded the binary tar file:

and took out just the libXrender.so.1.1, and installed it. Everything 
seems to work fine with that.
