The output is on the starting console. So yes, if you pipe the output of
wine to another command on the Unix command line, you must expect this
message. _As_ you must expect a zillion of other messages like
all those fixmes.

Or does the MESSAGE macros send to another chanel then the FIXME, and the
verstion string should then be sent to that chanel?

It's only printed when we start wine on the command line. CreateProcess
doesn't take that path to print out the message.

Other ideas? I still propose to print out the message as default. A lot of
bug reports will become a little bit clearer.
