That's true.  I should probably take this off channel.

It's not a Wine problem exactly.  More of a "make it work with Linux via
Wine" issue.  I've been developing against the Wine libraries (I don't
use Windows natively).  The tool I've been writing loads and runs
DirectShow DLLs via the IFileSourceFilter APIs:

In the process, I've been writing patches to wine to fully implement
some of the calls made by the DLLs I've tried.  In an effort to make
srcfilter as easy to use as possible, I've been trying to make it as
non-interactive as possible, hence my desire to make the dialogs never 
display, not require X11, etc.  I need the dialog to think it's running,
