Hmm. Which reminds me. In theory we could do even better. Since Alexandre
has to approve each patch we get a slightly larger "turnaround" time for
"obvious" fixes like the one this thread is about.

So why not have a special CVS tree (or perhaps branch of the current tree)
for Winelib users where anybody of the regular Wine developers could check
in "obvious" fixes for immediate use.

Lets impress even more people of our quick response. :-)
While this perhaps is 
1. Perhaps something CVS is unsuited for (but Alexandre said we
   might switch to Subversion eventually).
2. Perhaps something that should wait until post 1.0
it might be worth discussing.
