It might be simplest to simply reinstall Wine after installing IE. Or, if
we can get Wine to run the native REGSRVR32.EXE with no trouble, it
shouldn't be a problem when the Wine version gets overwritten with the
native version. Someone who wants a Microsoft-free installation won't
install IE anyway.
