Quite agree. No sense in wine trying run before it can walk.

When there are still issues with modal dlgs coming up hidden behind other  
windows and so many unresolved issues it does not seem to make sense to  
open a whole new can of worms.

There have also beem many regressions in wine over the last 6 to 9 mths  
that are still having fall-out.

It is close to reaching critical mass as win98 emulation and is coming  
together nicely. It makes sense for it to default to a reasonably working  
winver .

If a prog requires specifically xp and wont work on 98 then there is a  
strong likelyhood that it is calling for features that are a long way from  
being supported anyway.

Sniffing aside , winver=win98 makes more sense to me.
