just an update about this since it fell off list - it appears that Lionel
has a buggy (or maybe just old) dynamic linker which doesn't support "-z initfirst"
(which valgrind relies on).

so to sum up, there's nothing wrong with valgrind or WINE, but you may need a
glibc newer than 2.1.3 for success...

Real Programmers don't comment their code. If it was hard to write,
it should be hard to read, and even harder to modify.
These are all my own opinions.
