the patch was originally from me and the wsock maintainer also requested
to removed it the day it was submited to the cvs tree. 

i will provide this patch further on the page i have setup with
instructions how to run gpl and NR2002/3. if this patch prevents some
facny apps from working i think its better to remove it. all the gpl/nr
racers that run the game on linux are die hard fans of the game, who
have their windoze only running for this games and are looking for a way
det rid of it complete.  they will not care for quicktime as they use
<put some linux sofware here>. 

i dont have not time and also not the slightest motivation to look for a
proper solution on the M$ or Papyrus end.
