Regression in Wine on FreeBSD (DVD Shrink)

Lately I've been trying to track down a problem that prevents DVD Shrink 3.2
from starting on FreeBSD in any version of Wine built on/after 04-20-2005
(including the recent beta releases). Any version built prior to this works
I've tracked the problem down to the changes made to x11drv/dib.c (and
associated) on 04-20-2005. I'm not fluent in C; I merely found the problem
through trial and error.
If I copy the x11drv/dib.c (and ntdll/, so the old dib.c will work) from
04-18-2005 in place of the one introduced on the 20th, the problem disappears
and DVD Shrink fires right up. Changing dib.c (and dib.c only) back to the
20th snapshot re-introduces the problem, and DVD Shrink hangs again.
As I don't understand the code, I don't know how to detect where the problem
really lies, as the dib.c changes may only be indirectly responsible. I am
very willing to test for or aid anyone who wouldn't mind helping with this
I have already contacted the author of the changes (dib.c and associated) and
he suggested I try this list. If anyone would like to glance at the
differences between the two files I've mentioned above, I have posted a diff
--- are the old and working changes
+++ are the new and broken changes
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
