I updated from cvs at about 0530 CST, November 2.  I now need use only 
system.reg from a wine in mid-August to get IE6 to run and the help 
engine is functional.  I do not need to use a different user.reg now.  
Additionally, either native or builtin itss or advpack work fine.  The 
only difference is that with a native itss the fonts in the Help Window 
are "prettier."

I would like to try to do this.

To do my regressions, I wait for the monthly snapshot and download the 
full-cvs.  I would like to keep my repository updated.  Do I just 
"commit" from the updates of my sandbox?  Or is there another way to get 
Alexandre's commits into my repository.
