Wine can't run Roderick Colenbrander's VB test apps yet

Way back almost three years ago, Roderick Colenbrander posted
about Visual Basic support on Wine; see

He put together a little suite of four tiny test apps; you can still
download them at
Of the four test apps, only one runs properly now -- the one that puts
up a button.
The ones that put up anything more ambitious all fail.

The one app he provides an installer for seems to install properly, but
when you run the installed app, it crashes with
fixme:ole:ITypeInfo_fnGetRefTypeInfo Can't find pRefType for ref 19

I'd file a bug report but I have to run.  Could somebody have a look?
