I definitely had the 98 version of MSI installed.  I just tried again
with a fresh ~/.wine directory, and got the same problem.

I've put the log at http://www.antgel.co.uk/compsci/linux/cm4_debug if
anyone is interested.  I've also grepped the GetProcAddress calls at
http://www.antgel.co.uk/compsci/linux/cm4_debug_GPA - don't know if
that's any use.

Any other comments or ideas?
