(The VPN should be transparent on both sides of the connection, right?
Anyway, if it works for xterm (or my personal favorite, eyes), it should
work for Wine also.)

I use it to build/test the RH packages each month. There are some
glitches sometimes:
- When running Wine on a RH7.3 box via ssh, it tries to open the
X-server at :0.0 and fails, but not the second time);
- There are some OpenGL related glitches too (during wine.inf) related
to the nvidia driver permissions on the remote computer (would have to
be more careful next time to take note of them).
