So far it seems my memory wasn't all that good, because 2.6.4, 2.6.6
and 2.6.7 did not work. I'm working on some logs with relay and seh,
but relay seems to be failing on me with the latest wine release
(using wine's deb for 2005-03-10).

If you know where I can find the patches by Andy, I would be happy to
get them tested as well. I'm planning on doing some more testing next
weekend (including digging up my old, trusty p2; but only for SimCity,
W3 is too heavy) to figure out if it is a problem with wine, kernel,
the compatibility-layer for running 32-bit on x86_64 or even somewhere
in my config.
