Investigating a crash at startup

I have a program here (IBM Translation Manager v.6.0.4) which crashes
wine at startup. The program loads a DLL, and Wine starts importing
this DLL's imports from kernel32.dll. It crashes on the first import
in dlls/ntdll/loader.c:453, which says:

thunk_list->u1.Function = (PDWORD)find_named_export( imp_mod, exports, exp_size,
                                                     pe_name->Name, pe_name->Hint );

This causes an exception because thunk_list happens to be located in
.rdata section of the DLL, which is readonly.

Currently I have hacked this around by making all PE sections
read-write in map_image() in dlls/ntdll/virtual.c, and the program

If a Wine guru would like to investigate this problem, I can give any
support (e.g., ssh access to my computer with the program).
If not - I will be using this hacked version of Wine.

Best regards,
