Here are a couple of notes on making Lotus Notes 6.51 work on Wine 20050930

The previous version of Wine that worked properly was 20050725.

I upgraded to Wine 20050930 and restarted Notes. 
Notes crashed and complained about usp10 missing some entry points
I ran wineprefixcreate (Note that you cannot go back to Wine 20050725 after 
you do this, so back up you .wine tree before running this)
Ran winecfg and set usp10 to Windows Only
Restarted Notes
Notes seemed to work until I tried to save an attachment, then it crashed
Triaged the crash to a change on 8/15/2005 at 9:51CDT. The patch at this time, 
changes the default version from WIN98 to NT2K
Ran winecfg and set the default version to Win98
Restated Notes and the application works and saving attachments works 

Triaging the version change was a lot of work to find out that I just needed 
to change the default version. Took me nearly a day to find it.

If I switch back the version to default, the crash happens everytime. I 
believe a file selection dialog is being loaded and there is a problem with 
that dialog in NT2K mode and it causes a crash. 

The other thing that is odd is that the layout of the screen between WIN98 
mode and NT2k mode is slightly different in 20050930, mainly on the widget 
that lists the messages.
