I owe you a beer!

It works great.  No crash, and the minimap is there looking how I think
it should (don't have windows or cedega so it's the first time I've seen
inside the game properly).  Unfortunately, wine crashes out if I move
the mouse to another display.  so I can't take a screenshot for you :(
I'll take a look at that later when I've got more time.  The minimap
even works indoors (I think start rooms count as indoors), which is
apparently something that doesn't work in cedega in opengl mode ;)

There were a couple of compile warnings, but nothing to worry about:
wgl_ext.c: In function `wglCreatePbufferARB':
wgl_ext.c:335: warning: format argument is not a pointer (arg 5)
wgl_ext.c:312: warning: unused variable `bmp'
wgl_ext.c: At top level:
wgl_ext.c:218: warning: 'ConvertAttribGLXtoWGL' defined but not used.
