No, it is not. It is a software exception raised by explorer itself (you can
get the same effect by running Win98 explorer on Win2k). I have seen the
same problem myself and managed to fix it, though I can't remember how. I
have submitted quite a few patches specific to getting Win2k explorer
running on Wine, but they haven't been accepted so far.
For a start you could try --dll shlwapi=b and copying over the native
shdocvw.dll and browseui.dll and running regsvr32 on them both. Try running
with --dll ole32=b to see if it is a COM class that isn't registered and
finally try using some of my shell32 and shlwapi patches :)

Hope this helps,


BTW I have got explorer loaded and displaying a folder but there are no
items in the folder view apart from 'Desktop'. I am still trying to work out
exactly why this is.
