BTW, you might be able to clarify how it can happen that Crossover (derived
from LGPL-ed WINE, if I understand it correctly) doesn't have one of these
bugs, but WINE does? I used to think that LGPL requires availability of
modified source, and therefore WINE developers should be able to 'backport'
bugfixes from CrossOver to WINE, shouldn't they?
