No; John Sheets hasn't worked with us for a few years,
his email has clearly been harvested from someone elses
address book (one that had both he and wine-devel in
it :-( ).  Of course, doesn't mean that person wasn't
bitten by Wine...

CrossOver Office has a hack^H^H^H^Hproprietary
technology that prevents CreateProcess from opening
.exe, .bat, and a few others if the calling
process is 'outlook.exe'.  *This* is why Wine is so
cool - because we can choose to do the things that
Microsoft is resistant too.
