Ah, ok - yes well that's another problem altogether, but at least it'll be 
a *sane* problem at the packaging/sys-admin level, even if potentially 
frustrating. But if anyone cares enough about releasing a linux 
application in winelib form and protecting against lib/wineserver version 
hassles, they should probably also be releasing a bundled local 
installation of anything important from wine? Though I guess that assumes 
it's possible to configure/bundle the wine stuff (server, configs, etc) 
so that it works "locally" to an application installation rather than 
using global paths and what-not ...
