So do I interpret this to mean there is a plan to change this in wine? 
That would be great.

The proprietary DLL I call also uses winsock, I do not know whether 
synchronous or asynchronous, but is it then true that even if this 
dependency were changed to "delay", that if the DLL I'm calling opens an 
async socket (which uses a (non-visible) window handle for the 
notifications), that wine would require the X windows display at that 
point and fail anyway?
