I compiled it this morning on a fully patched Red Hat 8.0 box and it 
imported the registry just fine. I didn't use wineinstall, but the 
process to build rpms is mimmicking wineinstall quite closely. Note that 
you shouldn't use ./configure's --with-nptl switch, as RedHat 8.0 
doesn't use NPTL.

I'll install the produced rpm and tell you what I can gather (I'll be 
talking to it via ssh w/o X, so it won't be thorough).
