Hmm.  Guess you're working on zoc:
And you've filed ten bugs so far:
only one or two of which have been fixed.

I was curious, so I tried running zoc on wine-0.9.3 (compiled myself on FC3).
The first time I started it, it exited with an assertion; the log is

--- EmTec Application --- 12/17/2005 6:40:02 AM ---
    Condition: hwndLed
    Location : status.cpp line 878
    Last Err.: 0L ()
    Add. Info:

Every time I started it after that, it exits with a dialog "Panic: no fonts!".
I'd like to see this work; got any tips?

I'm glad you're sticking around even though it's hard to get your questions
answered!  Hopefully we can improve the ISV experience with your feedback.

Are you interested in being interviewed as a case study for my ISV page, ?
